Detectives Investigating Fatal Motorcycle Collision on 1st Avenue South Bridge

Detectives from the Traffic Collision Investigation Squad (TCIS) are conducting the investigation following an overnight single motorcycle fatality collision that took place on the 1st Avenue South bridge just before midnight.

The adult male motorcycle rider was travelling northbound on 1st Avenue South.  It appeared that he failed to negotiate the  South Michigan Street off ramp and went over the railing onto S. Michigan St. below.  The victim was declared deceased at the scene.  It appears that speed was a contributing factor to the collision.

TCIS detectives continue to investigate.
