Police Investigate Fatal Motor Vehicle Collision

Released on Wednesday, February 15, 2017

On February 15, 2017 at 3:26 pm, Fort Collins Police Services was notified of a motor vehicle collision at the intersection of the South East Frontage Road and East Mulberry Street.

A 2011 GMC Sierra pickup truck, driven by Zachary Marshall, 32, of Ault, was travelling east in the right through lane on E Mulberry Street approaching the SE Frontage Road. A 1993 Tan Honda Accord was travelling westbound on Mulberry Street preparing to make a left turn onto the SE Frontage Road. As the traffic light at the intersection changed, both vehicles entered the intersection and the GMC collided with the side of the Honda. Both vehicles came to rest on the southeast side of the intersection.

Marshall was treated for minor injuries at the scene and was released. The driver of the Honda was transported to Medical Center of the Rockies, and later died. The identity of the driver will be released by the Larimer County Coroner’s Office.

Eastbound Mulberry Street was closed at I-25 for approximately 4 hours while investigators processed the scene. Police do not believe that drugs or alcohol contributed to the collision. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the collision, who has not already spoken to police, is asked to contact Officer Drew Jurkofsky at 970-416-2224.
