Woman arrested on DUI charge after fatal motorcycle crash

Lisa Sierra also faces charges of vehicular homicide and careless driving related to the crash near Hampden Avenue and Tower Road in Aurora.

AURORA, Colo. — A woman has been arrested on numerous charges including vehicular homicide and DUI related to a Sept. 4 crash that resulted in the death of a motorcyclist, according to the Aurora Police Department (APD)

About 8 20 p.m., the motorcyclist was going west and a Chevy Camero was going east on East Hampden Avenue, police said.

The car, driven by 51-year-old Lisa Sierra, turned left onto South Tower Road and into the motorcycle's path, according to APD.

The motorcycle driver was pronounced dead at the scene, and APD said it appears alcohol was a factor for the driver of the car, who stayed at the scene. She was arrested the following day after receiving medical care at the hospital.

She also faces charges of careless driving resulting in death.

The identity of the motorcycle driver will be released later by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office.

The APD Traffic Unit was investigating the incident, and anyone with information was asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867 or by visiting metrodenvercrimestoppers.com. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
