Motorcyclist pronounced deceased on scene after collision with pickup truck

Boise Police responded to a motorcycle versus pickup crash at the intersection of Cole Road and Brentwood Drive at 8:04 a.m. on Thursday.  Preliminary evidence indicates that the pickup travelled southbound on Cole and attempted to turn eastbound onto Brentwood.  As the pickup was about to complete the turn onto Brentwood it was struck in the rear side panel by a motorcycle traveling northbound on Cole.  The driver of the motorcycle, an adult male, was ejected.  First responders quickly arrived on scene, but sadly the man was pronounced deceased.  He had not been wearing a helmet at the time of the crash and speed is being considered as part of the investigation.  Crash scene reconstruction experts are on scene and the investigation remains ongoing.
