On Monday, March, 24, 2014, a collision occurred in Boise involving a motorcycle and an SUV. The woman driving the SUV was issued a citation following the crash. The accident occurred at approximately 11:03 a.m.
According to witnesses to the accident, the SUV failed to stop at River and 15th Street as required. As a result, it struck the motorcycle.

Fortunately, he was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. He was thereafter taken to an area hospital. He is said to be suffering from non-life threatening injuries.
The woman driving the SUV was Marsha Jones. Ms. Jones is from Boise and is 56-years-old.

Unfortunately, distracted driving is a major cause of accidents on Boise’s many roadways. Cell phone use is a large contributor to distracted driving.
