LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Lincoln Police say a motorcyclist has died after injuries suffered from a crash Wednesday night.
LPD and Lincoln Fire & Rescue were called to the scene just before 9:30 p.m. after 19-year-old Simon Blair of Lincoln crashed into an SUV at 27th & Tierra Drive.
Police say the SUV was turning to go eastbound on Tierra, when the northbound motorcycle in which Blair was riding on crashed into the back passenger side of the SUV. LFR transported Blair to an area hospital, where he later died.
According to LPD, officers interviewed the driver of the SUV, an 18-year-old female, as well as the passengers and witnesses.
A crash report says the driver made the turn because she did not see Blair coming down the street on his motorcycle. It was only once she was in the middle of making the turn did she see Blair.
Charges stemming from the incident are still unknown at this time.
