A collision with a car left one motorcyclist hospitalized and his bike shredded into multiple pieces, after an accident that happened minutes after 3:00 p.m. today.
As the light on Avenue Y at East 14th Street turned red, the driver of an Audi A4 said he was caught in the intersection while attempting a turn. On the other side of the intersection, a motorcyclist heading east came from behind and blew through the light, he said, hitting his car as he made the turn.
The biker was thrown approximately 20 feet off his bike, sustaining injuries to his knee and ankle. The bike fell into pieces, and tore the bumper from the Audi.
Ambulances took the motorcyclist to the hospital just minutes after the accident. The Audi driver was unharmed, but did note that he just finished making payments on the car.
