A motorcyclist died Saturday morning in a crash near the Wye west of Missoula.

Authorities say that at 7:45 a.m., the driver of a pickup truck was traveling west on Highway 10 West, near West Broadway, preparing to the pick-up turn left toward Love's as a motorcycle was traveling in the opposite direction.

A Montana Highway Patrol trooper said the pickup turned in front of the motorcycle, and the motorcyclist struck the right rear corner of the truck in the eastbound lane.

No alcohol or speed suspected. The investigation is ongoing.
