Motorcyclist dies in I-90 crash near Wallace

A Post Falls man is dead after a motorcycle crash sent him flying off the elevated portion of Interstate 90 at Wallace today.

The Idaho State Police said Francis L. Cox, 67, was riding a 2008 Yamaha motorcycle eastbound on I90 at 11:43 a.m. today when he failed to negotiate a left-hand curve at milepost 61. His bike drove off the right shoulder and hit a jersey barrier, vaulting Cox off the bike and off the elevated portion of the freeway, ISP said. He landed in a parking lot adjacent to Bank Street in Wallace, police said, and was declared dead at the scene.

Cox was not wearing a helmet, ISP said.

The incident remained under investigation this evening.
