The Ada County Coroner identified the motorcyclist who died after a crash with a 19-year-old woman and a possible third vehicle that reportedly fled the scene.
Jaylynnar Lee Doughty, 46, of Ontario, died at the scene due to blunt force trauma, according to the coroner report.
The Ada County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating what caused a 19-year-old woman to lose control of her car and crash into a motorcycle on Idaho 21 Friday evening, and deputies would like to talk to the driver of a white van they say may have played a role in the fatal crash.
The impact killed Doughty. The driver and passenger in the car were treated at a local hospital for injuries described as not life-threatening.

No citations have been issued, and the names of the people in the car have not been released.
According to witness reports, the woman was driving a Saturn coupe northbound on Idaho 21 just before 6 p.m. Friday, approaching East Grand Forest Drive on a portion of road where passing is not allowed
A white passenger van, possibly a Ford XLT, crossed the double yellow line and passed the car, pulling in front of it, ACSO reports. The van's driver then reportedly hit the brakes suddenly, causing the Saturn's driver to hit her brakes and lose control of the car, going into the southbound lane and colliding with Doughty’s motorcycle.
The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead at the scene, ACSO reports.
The driver of the van did not stop and kept going northbound.
