MERIDIAN, Idaho — One man is dead after a motorcycle wreck on Meridian Road Sunday night. 

The crash happened at 7:09 p.m. at the intersection with Victory Road. 

Officials say a sedan was sitting at a red light when the motorcycle crashed into it. Investigators have not determined whether distracted driving was a factor in the collision, but say the motorcycle rider did not hit the brakes until the last moment. 

The rider, identified as 51-year-old Rodney Cummings of Caldwell, was pronounced dead at a local hospital. 

The Ada County Coroner's Office determined Cummings died from blunt force injuries. He was not wearing a helmet, according to police.
