MERIDIAN - Idaho State Police are asking for the driver of a pickup that may have been witness to events leading up to a crash early Wednesday morning on Robinson Road at Locust Lane that killed a motorcycle rider to contact them.

The crash occurred at around 6:00 a.m. when Sharalyn Rose, 28, of Meridian, was eastbound on Locust Lane in a 2001 Chevrolet Lumina and Paul Mackrill, 44, of Nampa, was southbound on Robinson Road on a 2009 Yamaha WR450F motorcycle. Rose was stopped at stop sign on Locust Lane and then pulled into the intersection. It was then when Mackrill's Yamaha struck the Lumina on the driver's side.

The driver of a cement truck who witnessed the crash told troopers that there was a silver 2006 to 2008 model year Dodge diesel pickup truck with an extra fuel cell in the bed of the pickup that was traveling southbound on Robinson Road between Greenhurst Road and Locust Lane that passed him shortly before the crash. The Dodge truck may have some damage to the front end from a previous crash.

Troopers would like to talk with the driver of this truck as a witness to the crash. The truck was not involved in the crash or a cause of the crash.

If you, or anyone you know, was driving a Dodge pickup truck matching this description to please call the Idaho State Police at 208-846-7550. Additionally, if you witnessed either of the vehicles involved in the crash prior to the crash you are also asked to contact ISP.
