COLORADO SPRINGS — The motorcyclist who died in a crash earlier this month at North Hancock Avenue and East 4th Street has been identified.

The El Paso County Coroner's Office says he is 27-year-old Cody Ray of Colorado Springs.

According to the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) the crash happened on June 1 just before 7:30 p.m. When officers arrived, CSPD says they saw that Ray had been thrown from his motorcycle and was pronounced dead at the scene.
