A 64-year-old Boise man was listed in fair condition Tuesday at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise following a motorcycle accident Sunday on Main Street in Hailey.

James E. Rochlitz suffered a head injury and complained of hip pain after the accident at 1:40 p.m. at the intersection of Main and Myrtle streets.

Rochlitz was initially transported by Wood River Fire and Rescue ambulance to St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center and later flown by Life Flight helicopter to Boise.

Hailey police reported that Rochlitz ran into the back of a 2002 Volvo driven by David McCormack, 51, of Hailey, that had stopped for a pedestrian crossing Main Street.

"According to witnesses, he never slowed for the car that was stopped at the crosswalk," said Police Chief Jeff Gunter.

Gunter said Rochlitz was wearing a helmet and was conscious and able to talk when police arrived at the scene.
