BROOKLYN, NY – A motorcyclist sustained critical injuries on Friday night after he drove through a red light and crashed into a car and two bicycles.
The collision occurred at approximately 7:30 p.m. on August 21, according to the New York Daily News. A 52-year-old motorcyclist was driving north when he ran a red light at the intersection of Bedford Avenue and Flushing Avenue. The man crashed his motorcycle into the side of a Volkswagen Jetta, as the car was moving west through the intersection. The motorcyclist lost control of his bike after the crash and then collided with two bicyclists in the northbound lane.
After the T-bone crash, the Volkswagen driver got out of the car to assist the motorcyclist. Neither the driver nor any passengers in the Volkswagen were injured during the collision.
The motorcyclist sustained severe injuries to his head and across his body during the crash. Medics rushed the man to Methodist Hospital for treatment of his injuries. However, officials report that the biker is in critical condition at this time.
