Man, son treated after motorcycle crash

Sheriff says driver lost control of the bike

Express Staff Writer

A 57-year-old Hailey man and his 12-year-old son were treated and released at St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center following a motorcycle accident late Saturday afternoon on U.S. Highway 26 about nine miles south of Carey.

Hospital spokeswoman Jenny King said the boy was released later Saturday while the father was released Sunday.

The Blaine County Sheriff's Office identified the man as Steven Frye. Sheriff Gene Ramsey said Frye, with his son as a passenger, was northbound on a 2000 Honda Shadow when the accident occurred shortly before 5:30 p.m.


"The driver drifted off the road and lost control," Ramsey said.

The sheriff said the boy, who suffered left knee and right hand injuries, was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle, while the father, who sustained a fractured right elbow and abrasions, was transported to St. Luke's by Wood River Fire & Rescue ambulance after being treated at the scene of the crash by the Carey Quick Response Unit.

Ramsey said the boy was wearing a helmet and his father wasn't.
