A deadly motorcycle crash caused major delays on Nevada at Winters in Colorado Springs Tuesday afternoon.

The crash happened just before 1 p.m. The road was reopened around 4:30 p.m.

Police say a commercial box van and the motorcycle were both approaching Winters coming from different directions on Nevada. When they reached the intersection and had a yellow light, police say both vehicles entered the intersection at the same time. The cargo van turned left in front of the motorcyclist, who was unable to stop and collided with the van. He died at the scene.

Police have released the name of the other driver, 23-year-old Jericho Benson, who was served and released on charges of vehicles turning left and careless driving resulting in death.
