One Dead After SUV Collides with Motorcycle in Bristol



    (Published Sunday, Nov. 27, 2016)

    One man is dead after his motorcycle collided with an SUV Sunday morning in Bristol.

    Police said the 34-year-old victim, identified as Corey Cuvelier, of Bristol, was driving on Route 6 around 6:30 a.m. when an SUV driven by a 20-year-old female, identified as Crystaly Acevedo, of Southington, tried to turn onto King Street in front of him.

    Lifestar was called to transport Cuvelier but he died before he was transported, officials said. Police said he was not wearing a helmet.

    Acevedo was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

    Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor in this crash and it appears the SUV driver did not see the motorcyclist when she turned, police said.

    No charges have been filed at this time. King Street was closed for several hours but has since reopened. The Bristol Police Department Serious Accident Reconstruction Team continues to investigate.
