On January 9, 2018, at approximately 3:24 p.m., the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office received reports of a motor vehicle crash in the intersection of North Highway 287 and West County Road 8 in Berthoud.  Deputies responded and discovered a crash involving a motorcycle and three passenger vehicles.

The investigation thus far has revealed that a 2015 Kia SUV driven by a 43-year-old Fort Collins woman was traveling northbound through the intersection.  A motorcycle, Toyota SUV, and Chevrolet pickup truck had also entered the intersection traveling westbound.  The Kia struck the motorcycle and the Toyota which caused the Toyota to strike the pickup.

The adult female driver of the Toyota was transported to a local hospital and treated for serious, but not life-threatening injuries.  The 54-year-old Denver woman operating the motorcycle was also transported to a local hospital and did not survive her injuries.  The Larimer County Coroner’s Office will release the identity of the woman after next of kin notifications are made. 

The crash investigation is ongoing and investigators do not suspect drugs and/or alcohol as contributing factors.  When the investigation is complete, investigators will screen the case with the Larimer County District Attorney to determine if criminal charges will be sought.  Anyone who witnessed this crash and has not already spoken to deputies is asked to call Deputy Chris Gilliland at 970-498-5516.

North Highway 287 and West County Road 8 were closed in all directions for about three and a half hours.
