      The Amarillo Police Department is looking for witnesses to a weekend motorcycle wreck that killed one person and left another with life threatening injuries.

      Amarillo Police said they dispatched officers to a motorcycle crash in the 600 block of North Mirror Saturday afternoon around 1:48 p.m.. Upon their arrival they found a Harley Davidson motorcycle had been northbound on Mirror Street. Police said the motorcycle was going too fast to negotiate the turn, left the roadway, struck a traffic sign, and then came to rest in a ditch. The driver of the motorcycle, 21-year old Jordan Dale Siesser, died as a result of injuries sustained during the crash. His passenger, 39-year old Inez Ellena Coronel was taken to a local hospital with life threatening injuries.

      The Amarillo Police Department officials said Siesser may have been racing a gray extended cab truck. Justice of the Peace Nancy Bosquez has ordered an autopsy. The crash is under investigation by the Traffic Investigation Squad of the Amarillo Police Department. Anyone that may have witnessed the crash, you are asked to call the Amarillo Police Department at 378-3038 or Crime Stoppers at 374-4400.
