Boulder Police Investigating Fatal Motorcycle Crash

BOULDER, Colo.The Boulder Police Traffic Unit is investigating a fatal crash between a motorcyclist and an SUV driver last night on 30th Street.

At approximately 7:22 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 3, officers were called to the intersection of 30th Street and Eagle Way for a report of a crash. A 2002 Toyota 4Runner was driving north on 30th and turning west on to Eagle Way when it was struck by a southbound 2020 Yamaha R6 motorcycle at a high rate of speed.
