Motorbike Accident on 115th and Broadway
Written by Bwog Staff
Update, 8:57: The police tape is gone and Broadway has been reopened for traffic.
Update, 8:15: With the commotion gone, there appears to be blood on the street about 3-5 yards ahead of the bike, which is still there. Policemen have confirmed to Bwog that there were no CU students involved. Police also confirm the skateboarder was a woman.
Update, 8:02: A policeman tells Bwog a different story: that the motorbike hit a woman crossing the street. He says both the man and woman are in critical condition and have been taken to St Luke’s. Several witnesses confirmed that it was a skateboarder who cut off the motorbike so no official word on the other party yet.
Update, 7:50: The firetrucks have left the scene, but some emergency vehicles remain. The man on the motorbike has been loaded into an ambulance headed to St Luke’s but the ambulance has yet to clear the scene. Witnesses report that the man on the motorbike looked very injured. No word on where the person on the skateboard is. Broadway in the downtown direction between 116th and 115th is still blocked off.
Update, 7:45: Bwog checked in with a few eyewitnesses who told us that the motorbike was going at a “reasonable speed” when someone on a skateboard cut ahead of him. The man on the motorbike braked and flew, again according to witnesses, at least 10 feet off his bike.
There was a motorcycle motorbike accident just a few moments ago outside Morton Williams. The entire street is currently blocked off, and police cars, a firetruck and ambulances are on the scene. The motorbike rider, who is male, is currently on the ground next to his bike. He is wearing a helmet, but there is a small stream of blood around his head. A few minutes ago, he was being helped by some civilians while ambulances arrived. We’re hearing lots of sirens now. A large crowd has gathered around Morton. Updates to follow.
