It's spring and many a fancy turns to riding motorcycles.
Kathy Autry was driving out of the Taco Time parking lot on Tuesday evening when she broadsided a motorcycle driven by Jesse Salas. Emergency 911 was alerted at 7:25 p.m.
Autry was driving a Buick Regal from the parking lot unto Bridge Street. She had her seat belt on. The air bags did not deploy so there wasn't a lot of speed, said Detective Paul Hardwicke and Community Program Coordinator for the Blackfoot City Police.
Autry was cited for failure to yield from an alley or driveway.
