A Pagosa Springs man involved in a motorcycle crash Saturday night, Oct. 10, was not found until the early morning hours of Sunday, Oct. 11.

The crash occurred approximately 4 miles up County Road 700 (Cat Creek Road), reported Colorado State Patrol Master Trooper Doug Wiersma in an email.

“He’s believed to have been there for a while before he was found,” said CSP’s Sgt. Ben Stuever.

According Stuever, the accident is believed to have occurred around 11:45 p.m., but it was not until about 4:30 a.m. that an officer was called to the incident.

The driver of the 2007 BMW motorcycle is listed as Sean Rich, 43, of Pagosa Springs, Stuever reported.
