Contact Information

On April 1, 2019 at approximately 7:06 p.m., Fort Collins Police Services was notified of a single-vehicle rollover crash at the intersection of Lemay and Lincoln Avenues.

A 2003 Ford F150 truck was traveling south on Lemay Avenue and went off the right side of the roadway before reaching the intersection with Lincoln Avenue. The truck crossed Lincoln Avenue and continued off the southwest corner of the intersection, rolling one time.

The driver of the truck, a 24-year-old male, was ejected during the rollover and suffered serious injuries. He was transported to an area hospital where he died from his injuries. The Larimer County Coroner will release his identity at a later time.

Members of the Fort Collins Police Services CRASH (Collision Reconstruction and Scene Handling) Team responded to investigate. Southbound Lemay Avenue was closed between Buckingham Street and Lincoln Avenue for approximately 5 hours while investigators processed the scene. Police are working to determine what caused the collision and if speed was a factor.

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