[AURORA, COLORADO] – A tragic accident has resulted in the death of a 31-year-old motorcyclist. The crash occurred on June 14, 2023, at approximately 3:56 p.m. in the vicinity of Tower Road and Interstate 70 in northeast Aurora. According to a news release from the Aurora Police Department, a preliminary analysis suggests that a 2012 Yamaha motorcycle, driven by an Aurora resident, was heading north on Tower Road when it was struck by a 2018 GMC Sierra pickup truck. The motorcyclist suffered severe injuries and was immediately transported to a local hospital, where he sadly succumbed to his injuries.
Eyewitnesses reported that the motorcyclist was wearing appropriate safety gear, including a helmet and a riding jacket, and was traveling behind a semi-truck in the northbound lane of Tower Road. It is believed that the 58-year-old driver of the pickup truck, who remains unidentified, was making a turn onto the I-70 onramp after the semi-truck had cleared the intersection. Regrettably, the driver failed to notice the motorcyclist and collided with him.
