Motorcyclist dies in 28 1/2 Road crash
A male motorcyclist was killed Tuesday afternoon after a collision with another vehicle on 28 1/2 Road near Elm Avenue.

The man was pronounced dead on the scene. He was not wearing a helmet, police said.
The crash and investigation closed the intersection for hours.

The driver of the Jeep, Brenda Malone, 56, was not injured in the crash.
The identity of the motorcyclist will be released after the Mesa County Coroner’s Office completes its investigation.
