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.”
(Videos sent to The Daily Iowan by Joey Domingo, who says he heard the collision late Sunday night. The videos were originally posted on Domingo’s Snapchat.) Video 1: IMG_3446.MOV  Video 2: IMG_3445.MOV

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.
