A man has been cited in a fatal motorcycle crash that shut down the intersection of Nevada Avenue and Winters Drive for several hours Tuesday.

Jericho Benson, 23, was cited for careless driving resulting in death after Colorado Springs police said he made a left-hand turn in front of motorcyclist as they both approached the intersection on a yellow light. Benson, who was driving a box van, was southbound on Nevada Avenue when he made a left hand turn onto Winters Drive.

The motorcyclist, who was heading north, was unable to stop before hitting the rear end of the van, police said.

Benson was not injured in the crash. The motorcyclist had not been identified Tuesday night.
