Police Investigate Fatal Motor Vehicle Collision
On June 29th, 2018 at 8:16 P.M., a 27 year old male was driving his 2007 Suzuki motorcycle northbound in the 200 block of South 12th Street. The motorcyclist was unable to control the motorcycle as it went through a couple of turns and the motorcycle went into oncoming traffic. The motorcycle collided head on with a southbound 1997 Mazda 626 sedan, driven by 26 year old Michaela Rupp of Fort Collins. The male was transported to Poudre Valley Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
The deceased driver’s identity will be released by the Larimer County Medical Examiner’s Officer at a later time.
12th Street was closed for approximately 4 hours while the Fort Collins Police CRASH Team investigated the incident. Police are working to determine if speed was a contributing factor in the collision. Anyone who has information and has not spoken to law enforcement should contact Officer Tim Brennan at 970-416-2229.
