One Dead in Albuquerque Motorcycle CrashPosted on Jul 12, 2010
Officials indicate that the motorcyclist was traveling eastbound on Central Avenue when he hit a dip in the road just east of Carlisle Boulevard. The driver lost control of his motorcycle, and both he and the bike slid down the street and crashed into the back end of a pickup truck. Police say the truck was in the process of making a U-turn at Solano Drive when the motorcycle slammed into it.
The seriously injured motorcyclist was transported to UNM Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police have identified the man who died in this accident as thirty-nine-year-old Donald Harris of Albuquerque.
New Mexico police believe speed and alcohol may have been involved in this crash. There is no information on the condition of the pick-up truck driver at this time.
We offer our condolences to the victim's family and friends at this tragic time.
