Pedestrian killed in crash was at memorial for motorcyclist killed 1 year earlier

A group of people was gathered to remember the motorcyclist killed last year when three of them were hit by a Jeep, police said.

WINDSOR, Colorado — A woman who was hit and killed by a Jeep in Windsor Saturday evening was at a memorial gathering for a motorcyclist who was killed in a crash in the same area a year ago, according to the Windsor Police Department.

Police said around 6:38 p.m., a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee was traveling westbound on Eastman Park Drive when the driver hit three pedestrians. Police said the pedestrians were part of a group of about 13 people who were gathered to remember 34-year-old William Thompson, who was killed in a motorcycle crash in the same block on April 2, 2021. 

One of the people who was hit, a 39-year-old woman, died on the scene. The other two did not require hospital treatment, police said. 

The woman who died was identified as Jessica Lee Matey Evans of Gill, Colorado by the Weld County Coroner's Office. The final cause and manner of death will be determined after autopsy and lab reports are completed, the corner's office said.

The driver of the Jeep stayed on the scene and is cooperating with officers, police said.

There's no word yet on whether any charges will be filed in connection with the crash.

WPD is asking anyone with additional information regarding the crash to contact Sergeant Aaron McConnaughey at 970-674-6400.
