A 41-year-old motorcyclist was hospitalized Tuesday morning after colliding with a car and a truck hauling a trailer, according to the Ada County Sheriff's Office. The man's injuries may be life-threatening, the sheriff's office says.
The crash occurred at about 7:30 a.m. on Ten Mile Road, between Lake Hazel and Amity roads.
Investigators say the motorcyclist was traveling north on Ten Mile and tried to pass a car. He pulled out into the path of the oncoming pickup truck and trailer, then tried to steer between the car and truck, the sheriff's office says.
He struck both vehicles before hitting the ground. The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, but it came off during the crash.
The driver of the truck suffered an injury to his arm. He was treated at the scene by paramedics, then transported to the hospital by a private party. The driver of the car was not injured.
Ten Mile Road was closed for an hour. It was re-opened at about 10 a.m. The crash is under investigation, and no citations have been issued.
