BOISE — Two Nampa residents were injured this morning when the motorcycle they were riding crashed near downtown.
Todd W. Johnson, 47, was guiding a 1997 Honda motorcycle at high speed west on Front Street at the entrance to Interstate 184 near 13th Street at 10:10 a.m., witnesses told an Idaho State Police trooper. Johnson was unable to make a curve and swideswiped a concrete barrier on the right shoulder between 13th Street and the Garden City exit.
Johnson and his passenger, Shawna E. Henkel, 25, were thrown off the motorcycle. Neither was wearing a helmet, police said.
Johnson was taken by ambulance to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, where he was treated and released.
Henkel was taken by ambulance to St. Luke's Meridian Medical Center, according to the state police. A hospital supervisor said Henkel was not listed on a public roster Saturday evening. She said that could mean the patient was treated and released or she asked that her condition report not be publicly released.
The crash is still under investigation.
