According to a press release by Fort Collins Police Services on Tuesday morning, the two motorcyclists were traveling south on College Avenue when a white Chevrolet Tahoe made a left turn in front of them. The Tahoe was driving north on College Avenue, attempting to turn west onto Swallow Road.  

One of the motorcycles, driven by a juvenile, managed to avoid collision with the Tahoe, but crashed his motorcycle on College Avenue. 

The juvenile was immediately transported to the Medical Center of the Rockies.

The second motorcyclist was pronounced dead on the scene after colliding with the right rear of the Tahoe. The name of the deceased motorcyclist will be released by the Larimer County Coroner’s office following a thorough investigation.

The driver of the Tahoe has been identified as Stacie Kenney and the vehicle had two passengers. All passengers of the vehicle remain uninjured.

Anyone who has information and has not spoken to law enforcement is encouraged to contact Officer Tim Brennan at 970-416-2229.
