FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Fort Collins Police Services (FCPS) is investigating a crash that left a motorcycle rider dead on Monday afternoon.

At about 2 p.m., FCPS responded to the intersection of East Mulberry Street and Peterson Street for a crash involving a motorcyclist and a GMC pickup truck.

When officers arrived, they found a motorcycle rider who had life-threatening injuries from the crash. The motorcyclist was later pronounced dead, according to police. The victim was not wearing a helmet, police said.

Through the investigation, police have determined that the motorcyclist was traveling eastbound on Mulberry Street at the same time the GMC was going northbound on Peterson Street. The GMC stopped at the stop sign before continuing into the intersection. This is when the crash happened, according to police.

Police believe another motorcyclist was riding nearby at the time of the crash and police are looking for that rider.
