The Iowa City Police Department was dispatched to the intersection of Burlington and Gilbert Streets at approximately 11:33 p.m. Sunday in response to a report of a single motor vehicle collision in which a motorcycle collided with a utility pole.
The driver of the motorcycle was determined to be deceased upon ICPD’s arrival due to the severity of the injuries the driver sustained, according to a press release from the city.
Iowa City resident Joey Domingo, 21, heard the collision.
“[A] witness came running to me and told me to call the cops because his phone wasn’t working,” he said via Snapchat message. “But I heard the crash and ran over.”

Traffic through Gilbert Street was rerouted until it reopened to normal traffic at 5:11 a.m. Monday morning.
Authorities are not releasing the identity of the driver at this time. The collision remains under investigation by Iowa City Police traffic collision investigators, according to the release.
