TED'S PLACE, Colo. - A Wyoming man died after crashing his motorcycle into a dump truck Tuesday afternoon near Ted's Place.
Colorado State Patrol Trooper Nate Reid said the crash, which happened at 12:02 p.m., occurred at the intersection of U.S. Highway 287 and State Highway 14.
Investigators said the motorcycle failed to yield to a stop sign at the intersection and crashed into the dump truck, which was traveling south on Highway 287. After the impact, the dump truck rolled off the side of the highway.
Reid said emergency crews had to extricate the driver of the dump truck. He was transported to the Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland in serious condition, Reid added.
Another vehicle traveling behind the dump truck, struck the motorcycle after the initial impact, but not the deceased rider, Reid said. He added the two occupants in that vehicle were not injured in the crash.
Investigators are still trying to determine where the motorcycle hit the dump truck. Reid said he does not anticipate any moving violation charges to be filed against the dump truck driver.
