COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A motorcyclist was killed Wednesday evening after losing control of his bike near a busy intersection.

Springs police say the rider was southbound on Tutt Boulevard when he missed a curve in the road and was thrown from his motorcycle. Witnesses rushed to his side and tried to help him until an ambulance arrived. Despite life-saving efforts from both the good Samaritans and first responders, the rider died at the scene. Police have not said whether he was wearing a helmet.

The crash happened just north of Barnes, and the entire intersection of Barnes and Tutt was closed for several hours while police investigated. It was reopened late Wednesday night.

The rider has not been identified at this time.
