Only On KRDO: Family identifies victim in fatal motorcycle crash

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - In an emotional interview, the family of Patricia Hynek, a woman killed in a fatal motorcycle crash in Colorado Springs Friday night, shared their tragic loss with KRDO.

"I miss my daughter, I miss her everyday, a parent shouldn't have to bury their daughter," said Davetta McCready, the mother of Hynek.

McCready spoke with KRDO NewsChannel 13 Sunday confirming the identity of her daughter as the victim of a deadly motorcycle crash in Colorado Springs Friday night.

It happened at the intersection of N. Academy and Village Rd. South around 11:30 p.m. According to the family, Hynek lost control of the motorcycle, was hit, and run over by another car.

"I can't imagine my daughter lying in the street up here, not getting seen, and then getting ran over," said McCready, tearing up in the interview.

It was the first of two different crashes that happened at this particular intersection in less than 12 hours.

Just before 10 a.m. Saturday, another deadly motorcycle crash also happened at the corner of N. Academy and Village Rd. South. Investigators confirming speed may be a factor.

"People need to slow down," said McCready.

McCready described her daughter as loving, bubbly, and determined. 

"It's very crazy, because you never know when it's going to be the last day you'll see someone you love," said Hynek's brother, John.

According to her family, Hynek grew up in Colorado Springs and leaves behind her 14-year-old son, Andre.
