A Nampa man is dead after trying to pass a tractor on his motorcycle Tuesday afternoon.

Idaho State Police are investigating the crash...It happened around 4:15 at the intersection of Riverside and Symms Road in Canyon County just west of Lake Lowell.

59-year-old Kevin Cherrington tried to pass the tractor but crashed into it when the tractor driver turned left onto Symms Road. Cherrington died from his injuries at the scene...he was not wearing a helmet.

That intersection was blocked for about three hours after the crash.
