On September 14, 2009 at 1:22 PM, an ITD employee was doing routine maintenance on State Highway 75 at approximately milepost 207.5, about 18 miles from Stanley when he saw two subjects and a motorcycle on the bank of the Salmon River. Ronald Weber, age 63, and Sharon Weber, age 60, both of Boise, were riding a motorcycle northbound on State Highway 75 when, for unknown reasons, they drifted off the right shoulder and down the embankment 90 feet. Both subjects were pronounced dead on scene. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor. Both subjects were wearing helmets. The investigation is ongoing by Trooper Hedges with assistance from Trooper Lewis, as well as Custer County Deputies and Paramedics.
