(COLORADO SPRINGS) — A motorcycle and two vehicles were involved in an early morning crash at North Powers Boulevard and Palmer Park Boulevard on Tuesday, April 25 according to the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD).
On Tuesday morning around 1 a.m. CSPD officers were called to the area of N. Powers Blvd. and Palmer Park Blvd. about a motorcycle vs. vehicle crash. The motorcycle rider, who was wearing a helmet, was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening, but serious injuries.
