The Colorado State Patrol is currently investigating a single vehicle motorcycle crash that occurred on Highway 165 near milepost 33 just west of Colorado City, CO. last Sunday. A call came in at about 2:45 p.m. Sunday afternoon. The witnesses stated the motorcycle was traveling at a high rate of speed and making unsafe passes heading south (in a westerly direction) before it failed to negotiate a right-hand curve.

The red 1997 BMW motorcycle, driven by 40 year old Clinton Walker of Rye, CO, went off the left side road edge and down an embankment before rolling an unknown number of times and ejecting Walker. The motorcycle came to rest south of the highway on its right side facing south. Walker came to rest southeast of the motorcycle. Walker was flown to Parkview Medical Center with serious injuries. Highway 165 was closed in both directions for approximately 30 minutes to allow flight to land.

Both speed and alcohol were considered factors in this crash and after investigation Walker was charged with DUI, driving a motorcycle without endorsements, and reckless driving.
