A 71-year-old who was reported missing in September was found in October, the victim of a fatal motorcycle accident, according to Fox 21 in Colorado Springs. The motorcyclist had last been seen on September 29 and was reported missing on October 1.
The authorities are unsure of the approximate time of the wreck, but the motorcycle accident was reported on October 2. The cause of the deadly crash is also still unclear. According to the Colorado State Patrol (CSP), the victim was traveling west on Colorado 12 on his 2011 Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle prior to the wreck.
At some point, the motorcycle went off the road and continued until it hit a log. CSP reported that after the motorcycle hit the log, it continued westbound before hitting a tree. The collision with the tree ejected the motorcyclist, who landed between two trees and a barbed wire fence. The motorcycle kept going for a little while longer before falling on its left side.
As of this report, the CSP is still investigating this accident. Drugs and alcohol are not believed to have played a part in the wreck.
