RE: Fatal crash on N. River Rd.
Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputies and Idaho Falls Fire responded to a two vehicle crash this morning on the N. River Rd, just North of 49th N. Callers reported the crash at around 11:19am advising a motorcycle and bicycle were involved.
Emergency personnel arrived on scene and transported the adult male rider from the motorcycle to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center with severe injuries. The bicycle rider, also an adult male, was deceased at the scene.
Both riders were wearing helmets and Deputies found they were both traveling North bound just prior to the crash. The circumstances are still being investigated but initial details indicate the bicycle attempted to make a U-turn in the roadway to go back south and was struck by the motorcycle attempting to pass by.
The investigation is ongoing and no further information is available at this time.
