BOISE --Police say a 22-year-old Boise man left a 30-year-old Boise woman with serious head injuries after he apparently crashed a motorcycle earlySunday morning.

Police say a bystander walking his dog reported finding the injured woman around 8 a.m. Sunday morning. She was reportedly laying down between some shrubs and a driveway on Manitou Avenue, just south of Boise Avenue. Police say the woman was taken to an area hospital with what they called potentially life-threatening head injuries.

After an investigation, officers say they connected the injured woman to a reported motorcycle crash earlier in the morning in the same area. At that scene, police say they found a short trail of blood, but did not find the driver of the motorcycle.

Meanwhile, the injured woman was found several hours later about a block-and-a-half away from the crash site.

Officers say their investigation eventually led them to a Boise man they believe was driving the motorcycle during the accident. Police booked 22-year-old Thomas A. Macfarlane into the Ada County Jail just after 2 p.m.Sunday.

Macfarlane is charged with a felony for leaving the scene of an injury crash.

Police say Macfarlane and the woman are acquainted, but wouldn't specify their relationship. They also haven't confirmed the woman was a passenger on the motorcycle, or how she was exactly injured.
