A crash between a car and a motorcycle killed one person and injured two others at the intersection of South College Avenue and Mason Street on Saturday morning, according to a press release issued by Fort Collins Police Services.

The accident closed South College Avenue and Mason Street for about five hours while investigators processed the scene.


At 10:09 a.m., Fort Collins Police responded to a report of a motorcycle and vehicle collision.

A 2013 Ford Escape was driving northbound on College Avenue in the left turn lane approaching Mason Street. The driver of the Escape turned left in front of a 2001 Harley Davidson motorcycle headed southbound on College Avenue, and the motorcycle collided with the front right side of the vehicle.

The motorcycle was carrying two passengers. The back passenger, a 37-year-old woman, was transported to Medical Center of the Rockies where she died from her injuries. Jesse Scott, the driver of the Harley Davidson, was also transported the medical center to be treated for serious injuries after the collision.

68-year-old Carol Davis, who drove the Escape, received minor injuries.

At this point, FCPS officers do not believe drugs and alcohol were involved. The incident is still under investigation and charges are currently pending.
