Liz Majors killed in m/c accident

Liz Majors was killed last night while riding her motorcycle. She was rear-ended and died pretty much instantly while going through a construction detour. She was a terrific mother, a wonderful friend and a fabulous rider. Vaya con Dios, my friend.

Chain-reaction accident in I-25 cone zone kills one

A chain-reaction accident in a construction zone on Interstate 25 near Mead late Thursday killed a 51-year-old motorcyclist from Arvada.

The dead motorist was not identified pending notification of her next of kin.

According to the Colorado State Patrol, a 1995 Cadillac Deville, a Suzuki motorcycle, a BMW motorcycle and a 2007 Toyota Corolla were southbound in the right-hand lane of I-25 at about 10 p.m. Thursday in the construction zone.

The left lane was closed.

The Cadillac came to a stop and both the BMW and Suzuki motorcycles had almost stopped behind the Cadillac when the Toyota Corolla slammed into the BMW motorcycle and then hit the Cadillac.

The BMW motorcycle went off the right side of the road and caught fire. The Suzuki motorcycle, which had been clipped by the BMW, went off the left side of the road.

The female driver of the BMW died at the scene. The driver of the Suzuki motorcycle, Gregory J. Cock, 43, of Arvada, was uninjured.

The driver of the Cadillac, Forrest E. Kelley, 62, of Aurora, and his passenger, Aleta C. Kelley, 60, were not injured.

The driver of the Toyota, Valerie S. Rudnick Vagher, 49, of Aurora, was not hurt.

The patrol said that alcohol, drugs and speed are not suspected as contributing factors, but inattentive driving on the part of the Toyota driver was a contributing factor to the accident.

Charges are pending.

What a senseless waste. She looks so vibrant, I hope her children are not very young. Condolences to the family.

To our friends in Colorado who knew Liz and especially those who were close to her please know that the BMW community in California and the broader English speaking www.K-Bike.com community mourn her passing.

With deep sadness,

I just got word today that the woman who hit/killed Liz was legally drunk and will be charged with vehicular homicide. A warrant for her arrest has been issued.

Good. I hope the court barbeques the clueless idiot to the maximum extent and that her obvious alcoholism (it's damn near ALWAYS alcoholism with DUI scum) kills her before she takes another life. The reason it's always alcoholism is that they've driven drink a zillion times before finally getting caught, or caught from killing an innocent.
While yes, it is a 'disease' of sorts, driving wasted shows a moral defect not related to it.
I'm sorry for the loss of the beautiful and clearly engaging woman to the DUI scum bag, so sorry.
Someday we'll have appropriate DUI punishment. We don't now. Doug
