A woman in Aurora, Colorado was killed on May 18 when the motorcycle she was on hit a car. Police reported the car was making a southbound turn when the motorcycle was still heading east on the right side. Police said the traffic lights for both vehicles were still yellow or just turned red. The male motorcycle driver locked his brakes when the van began to turn, causing the motorcycle to flip before it hit the car.
