Connector back open after motorcycle crash

Statesman staffJune 27, 2013 

Inbound Connector traffic was reopened shortly before 9:30 p.m. Thursday night after being diverted at River Street as police investigated a motorcycle crash.

According to Boise police spokeswoman Lynn Hightower, officers said it appeared that the man was moving at a high rate of speed when he failed to negotiate a curve, hit the barrier and skidded about 100 feet along the barrier. He was then thrown off his bike and landed in Rhodes Skate Park below the Connector. The motorcycle stayed on the Connector.

The motorcyclist, a 33-year-old Boise man, fell about 30 feet. He was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries. Witnesses said he was conscious when he landed in the park.

The crash remains under investigation.

More details will be posted on idahostatesman.com as they become available.
