On February 18, 2020 at 2:48pm, Fort Collins Police Services was notified of a motorcycle versus car collision at the intersection of Prospect Road and Whitcomb Street.

A Yamaha motorcycle was traveling west on Prospect Road. At the intersection with Whitcomb Street, an Audi sedan was traveling east on Prospect Road and made a left turn to go north on Whitcomb Street. The front of the motorcycle collided with the rear passenger side of the sedan.

The driver of the motorcycle, a 36-year-old man from Fort Collins, sustained serious injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. The driver of the sedan, a 19-year-old woman from Fort Collins, was not injured.

The intersection was closed for approximately 3.5 hours while CRASH (Collision Reconstruction and Scene Handling) investigators processed the scene. Police believe speed contributed to the collision.
