CALDWELL: Idaho State Police report that a motorcyclist from Meridian was killed Saturday afternoon as a result of a crash with a pickup truck. The crash occurred on July 19, 2014 at approximately 2:30 p.m. , at the intersection of Sand Hollow and Black Canyon Roads in Canyon County.
Aaron Sharp, age 52, of Meridian was operating a Harley-Davidson eastbound on Black Canyon Road. As Sharp approached the intersection of Sand Hollow Road, Russell Frisby, age 31, of Caldwell was driving west on Sand Hollow in a GMC pickup. Frisby reportedly attempted to make a left hand turn onto Black Canyon Road in front of Sharp who crashed into the pickup. Mr Sharp died at the scene as a result of his injuries. He was wearing a helmet.
The Idaho State Police is conducting an investigation.
In Idaho, a vehicle making a left hand turn from one road to another has the duty to yield the right-of-way to oncoming traffic. The failure to yield the right-of-way constitutes negligence per se in Idaho.
