Report: Driver was changing CD before fatal crash

KSAL StaffOctober 9, 2014

Police in Topeka say a driver involved in an accident that killed an 85-year-old motorcycle rider told officers he was looking at his CD player just before the collision.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports it paid $5 to the city’s Police Department Thursday for a copy of the report on the Sept. 12 accident.

The report quotes the 48-year-old pickup truck driver as saying he was trying to put a compact disc into his CD player just before the collision. The man said he looked up and slammed on his brakes but hit the motorcycle ridden by Harold Eulert.

The motorcycle then struck the back of another pickup. Eulert died at a hospital.

Police are continuing to investigate, and no charges have been filed.
