Highway 50 Motorcycle Crash Kills A Pueblo Man

Highway 50 Motorcycle Crash Kills Pueblo ManColorado State Patrol is investigating a single vehicle crash and a secondary collision that resulted in one fatality near Cañon City on Sunday evening.

Around 8:25 p.m., a 49-year-old Pueblo man was riding a 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle eastbound on U.S. 50 when he lost control of the bike. As a result, the motorcycle slid onto its left side and off the south edge of the road where it overturned and came to rest on the side of the road.

The man remained on the roadway where he was struck by a 1999 Buick Park Avenue as it traveled east on highway 50. The Buick did continue on for a short distance, but it came to a stop in the center median and the driver remained at the scene.

The motorcycle rider was not wearing a helmet or any other protective gear and suffered fatal injuries in the accident. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities will wait to release his name until next of kin are notified.

The driver of the Buick was not injured in the crash. The Cañon City resident, Joy Fillmore, 38, was wearing her seatbelt. As of now, alcohol or drugs are not suspected to have influenced the crash.
