Colorado Springs police are investigating a fatal accident on Circle and Platte.
The accident happened just before 10 a.m. Saturday morning.
One person is dead. Another person was taken to Memorial Hospital and remains in critical conditions.
The intersection reopened at 1:30 p.m.
A preliminary investigation conducted by police revealed that a Yamaha motorcycle was north bound on Circle Drive approaching Platte Ave. A red Izuzu SUV was south bound on Circle Drive and in the left turn lane at Platte Ave. The Izuzu entered the intersection on a green light, not a protected left turn arrow, and began to turn left onto Platte. The Izuzu turned in front of the Yamaha and was struck on the left side of the vehicle. Both riders on the motorcycle were ejected from the motorcycle.
