Man killed in motorcycle wreck at SE 31st and Adams
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A man driving a motorcycle has died in a wreck involving an SUV.
Topeka Police say the motorcycle collided with an SUV just before 7:30 p.m. Thursday night at southeast golf park and Adams, killing 25-year-old Colton Pearce of Topeka. The driver and only occupant of the vehicle is a 34-year-old man from Topeka.
A neighbor, Sheldon Terry, says his surveillance camera showed the SUV turning out onto Adams, and the motorcycle hitting it.
“I heard a big noise, looked up at my camera, and saw a bellow of smoke out the side of my house,” Terry said. “When I observed in the camera, I noticed a truck parked backward, sideways in the street like it is now, and I saw what appeared to be a broken up bicycle, motorcycle.”
Terry went to see if he could help, but Pearce was already dead at the scene. Police have not released the name of the driver of the vehicle. The incident is still under investigation.
