We now know the name of the man killed in a motorcycle crash on Tutt Blvd. on June 2.

Colorado Springs police says 28-year-old Matthew Headley was southbound on Tutt Blvd. when he lost control at Alderney Way, went off the road and hit a light police. The motorcycle was the only vehicle involved in the crash.

Police say Headley was not wearing a helmet and died on scene. According to police, alcohol and speed are believed to have played a role.
