About 6:45 a.m., an SUV collided with Burgess' motorcycle in the intersection of 1700 South and 900 West, said Salt Lake Police Sgt. Brandon Shearer.

A female passenger on the motorcycle was taken to a local hospital with injuries not considered to be life-threatening. The woman driving the SUV was not injured, Shearer said.

Police believe one of the vehicles may have run a red light, although it was unclear which one did not stop.

The accident blocked the intersection for hours, snarling traffic for rush-hour commuters.

Calls to Salt Lake police seeking to determine the status of their investigation went unanswered Tuesday evening.
