A Jeffco sheriff's deputy, Sgt. David Baldwin, died Sunday morning when his patrol motorcycle collided head-on with an SUV on Colorado 93 north of West 64th Parkway.
The accident occurred just after 10 a.m. when a southbound 2004 Saturn Vue reportedly crossed into the oncoming lane while passing on a curve.
Baldwin's Harley-Davidson, which was traveling in the left northbound lane, was struck by the SUV, according to a news release from the Sheriff's Office. Baldwin was thrown from the bike; he was pronounced dead at the scene.
