At about 8:36 AM, personnel with the Aurora Police department responded to S. Gartrell Rd., near the on ramp to westbound E-470 tollway, on a report of an auto vs. motorcycle crash.

Initial investigation indicates that an adult female was riding a motorcycle alone, southbound on S. Gartrell Rd. Additionally an adult female was driving an SUV alone, northbound on S. Gartrell Rd., and this motorist turned left, to the westbound E-470 on ramp, in the path of travel of the motorcyclist, causing a collision.

The motorcyclist was severely injured and was transported to a local hospital. Although she was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, she succumbed to her injuries.

The motorist in the SUV was uninjured, and remained at the scene, she is cooperating with investigators.

At this time, no alcohol or drug impairment is suspected. In addition, speed does not appear to be a factor.

The Aurora Police Traffic Section has taken over the investigation, and upon conclusion will recommend possible traffic and / or criminal charges if appropriate.

As this is an ongoing investigation, no further information will be released at this time.

All motorists are reminded, especially during warm weather months, to be extra mindful of motorcycles’ traveling the roadway.
