DES MOINES, Iowa – One man is dead after his motorcycle collided with a car Monday evening.

At 5:48 p.m. Monday, the Des Moines Police Communications center responded to a call involving a two vehicle collision on the 4100 Block of Broadway Ave.

A Polk County Deputy arrived first to the scene and performed CPR on Kenneth Dever Chapman.  Chapman was transported to a local hospital where he later died.

During the investigation, Des Moines Police say that Erin Buechler was exiting a driveway in her car to go west bound on Broadway Ave and did not see the motorcycle. The motorcycle hit the rear driver’s side and ejected Chapman.

Buechler was issued a failure to yield ticket.
