Nezperce man wrecks motorcycle near Kamiah Print E-mail

Motorcycle crashes after wheel locks up

     A motorcycle crashed through a fence along Woodland Road on July 18 after the rear wheel malfunctioned and locked up.

     According to a report by Idaho County Sgt. Carlos Martinez, Joshua Hamilton, 35, of Nezperce had decided to test ride his 1995 Honda Shadow on Woodland Road after getting it running.

     While driving north Hamilton attempted to shift from second to third gear when the rear wheel locked up and started to skid. Martinez reported that Hamilton was able to keep the bike upright until it left the roadway off the left shoulder. The bike went down an embankment and Hamilton tried to kick it away so he would not be trapped beneath it.

     The bike went through a fence on David Kries' property causing an estimated $200 in damage before coming to rest in a ditch.

     The accident occurred at approximately 6:59 p.m.

     "The skid marks verified what Hamilton was saying and the rear tire of the motorcycle was still locked up," confirmed Martinez.

     Hamilton was treated on the scene by the Kamiah Ambulance. Deputy Tim Sokolowski assisted at the scene.
