Warrant issued for Seattle man in Priest Lake boat crash

SANDPOINT, Idaho — An arrest warrant has been issued for a Seattle man charged after three people were injured in a July 4 boat collision on Priest Lake.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reported Magistrate Barbara Buchanan issued the warrant for 38-year-old Todd Frederick Stauber on Friday after he failed to appear in court on a summons.

The case against Stauber is sealed, but Bonner County sheriff’s officials have indicated the investigation involved the negligent operation of a boat.

Preliminary accounts of the crash indicated a ski boat collided with the side of a 31-foot cabin cruiser. Bonner County EMS officials say one person was flown to Kootenai Medical Center with serious head trauma and two others were driven to the hospital.

It was not clear if Stauber was among the injured.
