A motorcyclist hit his brakes but was unable to avoid a collision with a motorist who pulled into his path from a stop sign just after noon on Wednesday.
Steven Melton, 53, was headed north on 11th Avenue South at 12:29 p.m. on a 1997 Honda when a westbound car pulled out on 9th Street South and into Melton’s way, Sgt. Tim Riha of the Nampa Police Department said. Melton locked up his brakes and laid his motorcycle on the road before hitting the side of the car, Riha said.
The driver of the car, described as a 2005-08 Pontiac G6, fled the scene, Riha said. The car had green metallic paint and a “beat-up” look, Riha said.
Melton was taken to a local hospital and treated for unknown injuries. Riha said Thursday morning he didn’t know Melton’s condition.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
