Police say Myers was headed east on I-84 near the exit to Eagle Road when he failed to slow down for traffic in front of him. Myers' motorcyle hit the back of a Chevy Impala and flipped, landing on top of him in the road.

Myers' passenger, 30-year-old Melissa Thompson of Boise, was thrown from the motorcycle. Neither Thompson nor Myers was wearing a helmet, police say.

The crash blocked three lanes of the interstate for an hour.
