Travis Myers succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday Aug 30 2016.

On August 18, 2016, at 7:35 a.m., the Idaho State Police investigated an injury crash eastbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 46, near the Eagle Road off ramp. Travis Myers, 30, of Garden City, was driving a 2008 Kawasaki motorcycle in the far left lane. Lorraine Tracy, 52, of Wilder, was driving a 2014 Chevy Impala, also in the far left lane and in front of Myers. Myers failed to slow for Tracy slowing in front of him, swerved to the right in an attempt to avoid Tracy, but struck right rear side of Tracy's vehicle. The Kawasaki motorcycle then overturned and came to rest in the second lane from the left, on top of Myers. Myer's passenger, Melissa Thompson, 30, of Boise, was thrown from the motorcycle.

Myers and Thompson were transported to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise by ground ambulance. Helmets were not worn by either rider. Tracy was not injured and was wearing her seatbelt.

This crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
