One man is dead and a 9-year-old girl hospitalized after a motorcycle accident Thursday afternoon.
The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office says 36-year-old Brian Abeyta, whose driver's license was revoked, was out on his motorcycle just after 4 p.m. when he got in an accident with a truck. The sheriff's office says the accident occurred just outside a Pueblo West mobile home community at the intersection of Homer and Tolstoi.
Neither Abeyta or his 9-year-old passenger were wearing helmets at the time of the accident. Both were taken to Parkview Medical Center in Pueblo; the child was later flown to the Denver Children's Hospital, where she remains hospitalized. There is no word about the status of those in the truck.
Abeyta succumbed to his injuries Friday morning. The severity of the child's injuries are unknown at this time.
