On Sunday, March 3, 2013 at approximately 4:35 a.m. the Colorado State Patrol responded to a motorcycle crash that occurred on Southbound I-25 at North Academy.
The motorcycle was traveling southbound when it traveled off the left side of the roadway, lost control and rolled.
The rider, Andrew Fodera, a 52 year old male from Colorado Springs was ejected during the roll sequence. The rider was wearing a helmet and was transported by helicopter to Penrose Main with serious injuries.
The motorcycle came to rest in the right hand through lane on southbound I-25, and the rider came to rest between the right hand and left hand through lanes. A second vehicle traveling southbound came through the crash area and struck the ejected rider of the motorcycle on the legs. The second vehicle continued without stopping, possibly believing that it may have only struck debris from the crash.
Follow up investigation and tips to the Colorado State Patrol has resulted in this request for additional information from the public. The State Patrol is interested in talking with one of the parties who had stopped immediately after the accident, a female driver who was driving a pickup truck, possibly a Ford, possibly red or maroon in color, bearing Kansas license plates. It is requested that the party described, or anyone who knows the party described, contact the Colorado State Patrol as soon as possible.
The Colorado State Patrol is still urging any witnesses that were in the area of southbound I-25 at North Academy at around 4:35 AM on Sunday, March 3 2013 who have not yet come forward or the driver of the second vehicle to contact them at 719-544-2424.
