On June 30 at 12:21am, Fort Collins Police Services was notified of a motorcycle collision just south of Drake Road on Redwing Drive. It was reported the collision involved a single motorcycle.
When officers arrived, they found a 2007 Yamaha R1 motorcycle went off the left side of Redwing Drive while traveling southbound through the S-curves. The front of the motorcycle collided with a tree before ejecting the driver and traveling back to the right side of the roadway.
The motorcyclist, Bryce Wart, 25, of Greeley, was taken to Medical Center of the Rockies with serious injuries. He was not wearing a helmet.
Redwing Drive was closed between Drake Road and Flicker Drive for approximately 7 ½ hours while investigators processed the scene. Police believe alcohol and speed contributed to the collision. The investigation is continuing and charges are pending.
