ISLAND PARK — Idaho State Police are investigating the death of a motorcyclist on U.S. Highway 20 at Red Rock Road in Island Park.

The death occurred following a two-vehicle crash at 4:45 p.m. Saturday.

Police reports show Curt Kellinger, 61, of Island Park, was stopped at the intersection of Red Rock Road and US-20, attempting to make a left turn onto eastbound US20 in a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup pulling a horse trailer.

Kellinger pulled into the intersection and came to a stop due to traffic, blocking the westbound lane of US-20 with the horse trailer, according to an ISP news release.

Steven Nelson, 72, of Logan, Utah, was driving westbound on US-20 on a 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycle. Nelson collided with the horse trailer. He died of his injuries at the scene, and family members have been notified.

Both westbound and eastbound lanes of travel were blocked for approximately three hours.
