A 29-year-old man involved in a motorcycle crash in central El Paso has died, and officers are looking for a blue sedan that may have been involved, police said.

The crash happened before 5 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 4 on Elm Street and Savannah Avenue near Altura Avenue and Alabama Street.

Police said Raymone Calhoun was driving a Kawasaki 900 when the driver of an older model sedan failed to stop at a stop sign and drove in front of the motorcycle.

Calhoun was ejected from the motorcycle and was taken to University Medical Center, where he later died, police said.

Police say Calhoun wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

The wife of motorcyclist killed has pleaded for the driver to come forward.

The driver of the bluish green, older-model sedan is described as a person between the ages of 18 and 20 with acne on their face.

The 1999 Toyota Avalon has Texas license plates of DKV4558, and the vehicle should have damage to the driver’s side of the vehicle, police said.

On Wednesday, police released a surveillance image of the sedan.

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call police at 915-832-4400.

Special traffic investigators spoke to a man who lives in the neighborhood. The man said he saw the car drive away and that he yelled at the driver to stop.

Morgan Castaneda said he witnessed the crash, too. Castaneda said the car ran the stop sign, and the motorcyclist slammed into the driver's side.

"The car just came right up that street, rolled right past my house. So I was able to get the license plate number. The motorcycle T-boned right into the car. It pretty much sent him flying," Castaneda said.

The intersection of Elm and Savannah was blocked off for hours as authorities investigated the crash.
