What happened: Boise Police were called to the scene of an injury crash at 5:52 p.m. Preliminary information suggests a vehicle and a motorcycle were traveling at a high rate of speed westbound on Emerald when the adult male rider of the motorcycle lost control and crashed. The injured man was taken by Ada County Paramedics to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.  The other driver and multiple witnesses immediately stopped and are cooperating with the investigation.

Boise Police Criminal Investigation Unit detectives and a crash reconstruction team are investigating the crash.
