ROBERTS — A motorcyclist was injured after crashing at Basset Road and 2900 East Thursday around 5 p.m.

Jefferson County Sherriff Steve Anderson said deputies pulled the Roberts man over for a traffic stop when he proceeded to drive off.

Idaho State Police say 38-year-old Dustin Lamb was driving a 1984 Honda Motorcycle and he drove off the road into a ditch. Anderson said excessive speeds did not play a part in the crash.

Lamb was not wearing a helmet and was transported to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls where a spokeswoman said he was listed in fair condition Friday afternoon.

It’s unclear why Lamb fled from officers and whether charges will be filed.
