One man is dead and three people are in the hospital after a crash on US-95.

Idaho State Police say 35-year-old Cory Kreager was driving eastbound on Boekel road in a black Ford F350 when he failed to stop at a stop sign. That's when he impacted the driver's side of 74-year-old Vern Allen's vehicle. Allen was driving northbound on US-95 in a Dodge Caravan.

Ryan Allen was ejected from the vehicle and passed away at the scene. All the occupants of both vehicles were wearing their seatbelts. Vern Allen and his two other passengers were taken to Kootenai Health.

Alcohol is suspected to be a factor and the investigation is ongoing.
