Phoenix, AZ (September 8, 2019) – A motorcyclist who was injured in a crash nearly two weeks ago has died, according to Phoenix police.
Mathew Streu, 38, was transported to the hospital in critical condition after a crash on August 23rd around 12:40 p.m. According to authorities, he was traveling west on Thomas Road on a 2000 Suzuki motorcycle when he collided with a 2015 Toyota Corolla near 8th Street.
The driver of the Toyota Corolla, a 57-year-old woman who was not injured in the crash, was also traveling westbound on Thomas Road when she stopped in a curb lane due to backed-up traffic at 7th Street.
No indications of impairment were found, but the investigation is ongoing, according to Sgt. Maggie Cox of the Phoenix Police Department.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of Mathew Streu at this time.
