Posted on

Grand Junction Police are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash that happened at about 5:15 this evening.  As a result, southbound 1st Street is closed.  A detour has been set up at Main St.

At this point in the investigation we believe the man was riding with a group of approximately eight to ten other riders. He was making the curve at Pitkin Ave. and lost control, crashing into the concrete barrier.  The man was not wearing a helmet.  He died on scene.  No other riders in the group crashed.

Crash investigators are on scene and will be mapping the intersection as part of the investigation.  This section of 1st Street will remain closed for a couple of hours.  We will update you when the street reopens.  Please avoid the area for now.
