FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: DATE: 05-25-2008 TIME: 12:45 A.M.

On May 24, 2008 at approximately 5:45 P.M., Colorado State Troopers responded to a fatal crash on north 75th Street at Rozena Street in Boulder County. A black 2006 Suzuki GSXR750 motorcycle was southbound on N 75th St. A white 2006 Kia Sorento was northbound on N 75th St. A black 2004 Saturn Vue was stopped on Rozena Drive facing east. The Kia started to make a left-hand turn onto Rozena Drive when the Suzuki collided into the right front corner, pushing it about 10 feet sideways into the Saturn, and ejecting the rider.

The rider of the Suzuki has been identified as Jacob Gonzalez, age 25 of Westminster, CO. Gonzalez was not wearing a helmet and sustained fatal injuries. Gonzalez was pronounced dead at the scene by the Boulder County Coroner.

The restrained driver of the Kia has been identified as Elizabeth Schrieber, age 17 of Longmont, CO. Schrieber sustained moderate injuries and was airlifted to Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland. The passenger has been identified as Brianne Bailey, 18 of Longmont, CO. Bailey sustained minor injuries and was transported to Longmont United Hospital.

The driver of the Saturn has been identified as Stan Dirks, age 38 of Longmont, CO. Dirks sustained no injuries.

Alcohol or drugs are not suspected as contributing factors. However speed on the part of the motorcycle is suspected to be a factor.

The crash remains under investigation. Charges are pending, if any.

Next of kin have been notified
