Denver, CO (August 11, 2021) – One person has lost their life as a result of a motor vehicle accident late Sunday evening in the Denver area. On August 8, emergency crews were requested at the scene of an accident on Butchtel Boulevard.

Reports from the Denver Police Department show that a motorcyclist was traveling on Buchtel Boulevard when they collided with a sedan just west of the intersection of University Boulevard. The rider sustained severe injuries and was rushed to a local hospital. Authorities confirmed that the victim passed away after arriving. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family of the victim who lost their life in this accident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Denver, Colorado

Nearly 600 people lose their lives in auto crashes across the state of Colorado each year. In many cases, people are using motorcycles at the time of their collisions. These vehicles leave riders vulnerable to the impact of vehicles, which increases the likelihood of severe and life-threatening injuries. Although most drivers are careful and considerate while traveling throughout the state, we see a significant number of people hurt in motorcycle accidents due to the negligent and reckless actions of other drivers.

When riders suffer fatal injuries in crashes, they often leave families behind to deal with overwhelming mental and emotional consequences. To make matters even worse, families are forced to endure towering financial consequences related to funeral expenses, lost earnings, loss of inheritance, and various other end-of-life costs.
