A motorcyclist is dead following a collision with a semi on Highway 40 between I-70 and Heritage Road.

According to Sgt. Denise Mehnert, officers who responded to the scene earlier this afternoon determined that the motorcyclist had died. The initial investigation has determined the semi was making a left turn onto the highway to go eastbound when it collided with the motorcycle, which was heading westbound.

Mehnert said officers have not yet been able to make a determination about fault in the accident. The Jefferson County Coroner's Office has not identified the motorcyclist. Highway 40 was closed but has since reopened.
