A Colorado man died Monday afternoon from injuries he sustained in a motorcycle crash earlier that day when he hit a deer on U.S. 20 east of U.S. 250.
Richard Bell, 63, of Englewood, sustained serious head injuries after being ejected from his 2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle, which was towing a small bike trailer. Troopers with the state Highway Patrol's Norwalk post said after hitting the deer that crossed the road, the bike went off the north side of U.S. 20, hit a ditch and the trailer hit Bell, who was not wearing a helmet.
A medical helicopter flew him from the scene to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 1:52 p.m. Monday.
North Central EMS arrived shortly after Norwalk Fire Capt. William Knadler and another firefighter responded at 10:25 a.m. The firefighters established a landing zone for the medical helicopter, which arrived about 10 minutes later.
