Terris Blain Webb, 50, who was in critical condition after being brought to Saint Alphonsus Medical Center in Boise, had improved to fair condition as of Monday, May 9, hospital spokesman Mark Snider said.

Webb was hurt when the motorcycle he was riding went off Highway 86 along the Powder River and plunged down a 25-foot embankment on the afternoon of May 4.

Police found Webb a short distance from the Honda motorcycle.

An emergency helicopter brought Webb to the Boise hospital.
