An Idaho man died Saturday afternoon between Wilbur and the Keller Ferry when his motorcycle crossed the centerline on a sharp curve and struck a guardrail, the Washington State Patrol reported.

Larry Everett Merriman, 75, was headed north on a 2002 Yamaha XVS11AP near milepost 99 and entering a sharp, left-to-right curve when he crossed the southbound lane, striking the guardrail just after noon May 26.

Merriman was wearing an approved helmet, and neither drugs nor alcohol were a factor in the crash, the State Patrol reported.

His family was notified by police in Post Falls, Idaho.
