On Sunday, TPD release new facts on the collision.
Reviews state that the collision included a red 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt and a 2019 Yamaha YZFR3 bike.
Tucson Hearth Section officers responded to the collision and transported the motorcyclist, who has been determined as 53-yr-aged Blaine Martineau, to Banner University Clinical Heart. Martineau was pronounced dead right before arriving at the healthcare facility.
According to TPD, the driver of the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt was generating a “still left switch from a personal enterprise” on the northeast corner of the intersection. As the driver turned, the motorcycle rider, who was “touring northbound 1st Ave” crashed into Cobalt.
The driver of the Cobalt cooperated with the investigation, law enforcement say.
Police say the driver of the Cobalt was not impaired at the time of the crash.
No expenses or citations have been designed at this time, even so, police say that “failure to yield earning a still left-switch by the Cobalt is the significant contributing element in the collision.”
This is an ongoing investigation.
