KIMBERLY, Idaho (AP) — A south-central Idaho man has died after a motorcycle being towed by a vehicle went into oncoming traffic on a curve and struck a pickup.

Idaho State Police say 44-year-old Joseph Houston of Twin Falls died Sunday at Saint Luke's Magic Valley Medical Center in Twin Falls.

Police say that Houston on Saturday was on a 2000 Harley Davidson motorcycle being pulled by a 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche on U.S. Highway 30 in Kimberly.

Police say that Houston lost control of the motorcycle on a curve and went into oncoming traffic and struck the side of a 2007 Ford F350 pickup.

Police say Houston wasn't wearing a helmet.
