Colo. DA dies in motorcycle accident

GOLDEN – Authorities say the district attorney for two southwestern Colorado counties died after being thrown from his motorcycle on Interstate 70 west of Golden.

The Colorado State Patrol says 57-year-old Jim Wilson was making a turn at about 7:55 a.m. Saturday when he lost control of his motorcycle. Trooper Matt Petty says Wilson was thrown from his motorcycle and his body rolled down an embankment.

Wilson was wearing a helmet at the time.

Wilson’s term covering Montezuma and Dolores counties was expected to end January 2013.
