COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Two people are dead following a motorcycle crash in Colorado Springs that happened in late April.
Officers responded to Briargate Parkway and Chapel Hills Drive around 10:15 p.m. on April 26 for the crash involving a motorcycle and pickup truck. The two people on the motorcycle were both taken to the hospital, and both eventually passed away. The occupants of the truck were treated for minor injuries.
The coroner identified the motorcyclist as 25-year-old Chad Reid and the passenger as 27-year-old Dezarae Mash-Hill. Dezarae passed away on May 5.
“Further investigation found that the Jeep Gladiator was traveling west on Briargate Parkway and attempted a left, southbound turn on Chapel Hills Drive,” part of a news release sent out by Colorado Springs Police on Tuesday reads. “During the left turn, a motorcycle traveling east on Briargate Parkway entered the intersection and struck the Jeep Gladiator.”
Investigators believe speed and alcohol were potential factors in the crash. Early into the investigation, it is believed Reid may have been under the influence at the time of the crash.
The day after the crash, April 28, motorcyclist Adam Buck was killed in a crash. The person who hit and killed Specialist Buck is suspected of DUI.
