Fatal Colorado motorcycle accident kills 1, injures another

A recent motorcycle crash has left one man dead and another injured. The motorcycle accident took place on a recent Monday evening in Widefield, Colorado. The preliminary crash scene investigation suggests that a motorcyclist was riding up a hill on Goldfield Road as a Chevy sedan was approaching in the opposite direction.

Witnesses stated that the motorcycle rider accelerated quickly as he neared the crest of the hill. At some point, he appears to have lost control of the bike and drifted into the wrong lane. He encountered the Chevy as he crested the hill, crashing into the front end of the sedan.

The motorcycle rider died at the scene as a result of injuries sustained during the crash. Police believe that the driver of the sedan did not even see the motorcycle until it was too late to avoid the collision. That driver was transported to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries.

While the investigation into this motorcycle accident is ongoing, the initial reports suggest that the motorcyclist may be responsible for the crash. While the driver of the other vehicle was reported to have sustained only minor injuries in the collision, there is no word of whether he or she has sought additional medical treatment in the timeframe following the incident. In many cases, injuries that seem minor at first glance can turn into significant medical concerns over time. Should the investigation find that the motorcyclist was at fault in this incident, the driver of the sedan will have the right to pursue a Colorado civil suit against the biker's estate to recover damages in the case.
