3 injured when trailer breaks free, causes rollover
Article Text:SAGLE — A trailer broke free from its hitch Saturday afternoon, crashing into an oncoming car, causing it to roll. Alan Gibson, 51, was southbound in a 1986 Dodge truck near milepost 468 on U.S. 95 in the Sagle area when the trailer he was hauling started to fishtail.

It broke loose and struck a northbound Kia Sedona driven by Ruby Wheeler, 41, of Sandpoint who had pulled over to try and avoid the trailer.

After being struck by the trailer, Wheeler drove off the road, causing her vehicle to roll. Wheeler and two passengers were transported to Bonner General Hospital in Sandpoint. Wheeler was admitted and was in stable condition Saturday evening.

No information was available on her passengers. Coeur d'Alene and Post Falls police reported a quiet weekend in spite of Friday's snowfall, with no significant traffic incidents.
