Police Investigate Serious 3 Vehicle Collision
On June 11, 2022, at approximately 1:57 PM, Fort Collins Police were notified of a three car injury crash involving two vehicles and a motorcycle at the intersection of W Suniga Road and N College Avenue. The motorcycle rider, an adult male, sustained serious injuries as a result of the collision and was transported to an area hospital. A driver of one of the vehicles was also transported to an area hospital to be evaluated. Due to the severity of the injury to the motorcyclist, the Fort Collins Police CRASH (Collision Reconstruction and Scene Handling) Team responded to further investigate the collision.
The investigation revealed that a northbound Honda HR-V was attempting a left turn from College Avenue onto Suniga Road when it collided with a southbound Buick Lucerne. Shortly thereafter, a southbound Harley Davidson motorcycle also collided with the Honda HR-V.
“With warmer weather, there are not only more people on our roadways but also more modes of transportation being used such as motorcycles and bicycles. It is important to be cognizant of all roadway users for everyone’s safety,” said Sergeant Mike Avrech who oversees the Fort Collins Police CRASH Team.
College Avenue was closed between Vine Drive and Conifer Street for approximately 3 ½ hours while investigators processed the scene. Anyone with information regarding this collision who has not already spoken to police, is asked to call Officer Ken Koski at (970) 416 2229.
