STAMFORD, Conn. (WFSB) - The Stamford Police Department’s Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Squad are investigating a fatal motor vehicle vs. motorcycle incident.

Earlier today, a small motorcycle, being operated by a 68 year-old Stamford resident, was traveling southbound on Newfield Ave.

At some point, that the operator of the motorcycle crossed into the northbound travel lane of Newfield Ave and collided with a four door sedan before hitting a second vehicle.

The collision with the first vehicle caused the operator to be thrown off of the motorcycle, according to police.

The motorcycle continued traveling southbound until coming to final stop just off of the roadway on the northbound side of the road.

The white sedan did not stay on the scene and continued travelling while the second vehicle stayed on the scene and attempted to assist the motorcyclist.
