A 21-year-old Caldwell motorcyclist died after colliding with the back of a semitrailer on Interstate 84 on Monday evening.

Idaho State Police say the crash happened just before 10 p.m. when Eric Hauser was westbound on I-84 on a 2018 Kawasaki motorcycle at milepost 29 in Caldwell.

Henry Boswell, 57, of Meridian, was westbound in a 2006 International semi pulling a single trailer. Hauser struck the rear of the trailer, according to ISP. The Kawasaki came to rest in the lane of travel, and the semi came to rest on the right shoulder.

Boswell was wearing a seat belt and Hauser was wearing a helmet.

Hauser died at the scene.

The crash is under investigation by ISP.
