A motorcyclist died after he was hit by a car at the intersection of the Idaho 44 and Edgewood Lane early Friday evening.

Witnesses told police the motorcyclist was driving westbound on Idaho 44 around 6 p.m. when a car going eastbound turned north onto Edgewood Lane and collided with the motorcyclist in the intersection.

Another car heading westbound on Idaho 44 then hit the motorcyclist. Initial information indicates the motorcyclist had a green light at the time of the crash.

No one in the two cars involved was injured in the crash. The motorcyclist did not appear to be wearing a helmet.

The crash is still being investigated and no citations or charges have been issued at this point.

The Idaho 44/Edgewood intersection has been the site of over a dozen crashes since April when a blinking yellow turn signal was installed. Most of those crashes occurred when people turning north onto Edgewood from eastbound State Street failed to yield to oncoming traffic.

The speed limit on that part of Idaho 44 is 55 mph.
