Contact Information

On October 13, 2017 at 12:06 p.m., Fort Collins Police were notified of a single-vehicle motorcycle collision in the 2400 block of South College Avenue. A 24-year-old male was driving his motorcycle south in right lane of southbound College Avenue. The motorcyclist made a lane change to the left lane when he lost control and hit the center median curb. The motorcycle and driver crashed to the ground, coming to rest a short distance later. The driver was not wearing a helmet and was transported to the Medical Center of the Rockies with life-threatening injuries. He later succumbed to his injuries. The driver was the only person on the motorcycle.

The motorcyclist’s identity will be released by the Larimer County Coroner pending notification of next of kin.

Several lanes of northbound and southbound College Avenue were closed for approximately three hours while the Fort Collins Police CRASH Team investigated the incident. The team deployed an unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) to map the scene as part of the investigative process.

Anyone who has information and has not spoken to law enforcement should contact Officer Tim Brennan at 970-416-2229.
