Jacob Arntson was riding with his father, John Arntson, on I-84 Monday afternoon when their pickup truck slid on ice over the guardrail and into the Columbia River near Mosier, east of Hood River.
The 40-year-old driver wasn't able to save his son and swam to shore. Divers recovered the boy's body Monday night in about 40 feet of water.
Assistant baseball coach Tom Bohlman told KATU that many high school students knew Jacob. They left balloons, flowers and toys on the baseball field in an improvised memorial.
