A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
A motorcyclist is recovering in the hospital after police say he was ejected in a collision with a Volkswagen sedan.
The motorcyclist was alert when he was transported, but his condition is unknown. Police say he was wearing a helmet and full protective gear.
The collision happened at the intersection of Cheyenne Boulevard and Wolfe Avenue, near 8th Street, just before 6:45 a.m. Police say the sedan was crossing Cheyenne Boulevard and failed to yield to the motorcyclist. Police also think the motorcyclist was unable to see the oncoming sedan because of the sun glare, and wasn't able to stop or slow in time.
The driver of the sedan will be cited for the accident. It's unknown what charges he could face until the motorcyclist's condition is known.
The intersection reopened just after 8 a.m.
