BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Two out-of-state men were killed in separate motorcycle crashes in Idaho over the weekend.

The Idaho State Police say a homemade three-wheel motorcycle went off U.S. Highway 95 south of New Meadows and rolled, killing a man and injuring his passenger. The victim was identified as 49-year-old David Borst Jr. of Hillsboro, Ore. His passenger, 52-year-old Michelle Borst, was taken to a hospital in Boise. The crash happened at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

About an hour later, a motorcycle failed to negotiate a turn in Twin Falls, went off the road, through a wooden fence and into a field. The crash killed 23-year-old Brandon Gratriex of Susanville, Calif., and injured his passenger, 20-year-old Kesia Lewis of Twin Falls. She also was hospitalized in Boise.
