1 dead, 1 hurt in motorcycle crash after Colorado pursuit

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado ” A motorcyclist is dead and his passenger is hospitalized after the operator lost control while allegedly fleeing from Colorado State Patrol troopers.

Colorado Springs police Sgt. Rich Smith says a State Patrol DUI enforcement vehicle was trying to pull over 41-year-old William Lee Campbell late Monday when Campbell refused to stop and led troopers on a pursuit at speeds reaching 95 mph.

Troopers soon called off the pursuit, but later spotted the motorcycle again. The bike then hit a curb, throwing Campbell and a female passenger off the motorcycle.



Campbell died at a Colorado Springs hospital. Smith says the passenger, 41-year-old Maria Renee Campbell, was injured but is expected to survive.

The State Patrol says neither victim wore a helmet.
