CALHAN, Colo. (KKTV) - Two motorcycle riders were airlifted to the hospital Tuesday morning after passerbys found them in a ditch outside Calhan.

According to Colorado State Patrol, the riders crashed hours earlier, but the wreck was not found until just before 6 a.m.

Based on the investigation, troopers believe the riders were traveling eastbound on Highway 24 when their Harley Davidson ran off the side of the road and rolled down a steep embankment. Both people were thrown from the bike. Neither was wearing a helmet.

The crash happened on a rural stretch of highway near Harrisville Road, just east of Calhan.

The riders were identified as Mac Evans and his soon-to-be wife Kyrie Richert. Mac survived the crash and tragically, Kyrie passed away soon after arriving at the hospital. According to a close friend of Mac, he is in the hospital fighting for his life. As of Thursday night Mac remained in a drug-induced coma. At the same time, friends and the community are doing what they can to help the family.

A GoFundMe was created to help the family that is described as caring with their whole hearts all of the time.

“They always found a way to give to everyone they knew,” Chris Sanchez said of Mac and Kyrie. “Without ever asking for anything. Anything would help at this point. There is no amount of help that would looked upon as too small or large.”

Chris says the money raised will go directly to the family and help take care of the needs as they try to mourn the loss of amazing young lady.
