One person died and another was seriously injured in a fatal motorcycle crash in Loveland Thursday night.
About 10 p.m., an adult man was driving a motorcycle with a female passenger northbound on Boise Avenue when he drove the motorcycle off the road and crashed into a resident’s garage in the 2600 block of N. Boise Avenue, police said.
The female passenger was ejected from the motorcycle and was pronounced dead on the scene, according to Loveland police. The driver was also thrown from the motorcycle and was transported to the Medical Center of the Rockies with serious injuries.
The identity of the deceased passenger will be released by the Larimer County Coroner’s Office following the notification of the person’s family.
Preliminary reports indicate alcohol and speed were contributing factors to the crash. Neither person was wearing a helmet, police spokesperson Ben Hurr said.
This is the 15th person to die in crashes on Larimer County roads so far this year. At this time last year, 27 people had died in crashes in Larimer County.
