Two men severely injured when a vehicle struck a motorcycle carrying the two in Louisville, police stated.
According to police, the accident happened at the intersection between Rangeland Road and Ridgecrest Road. Police stated that the 30-year-old driver of the Chrysler 300S rear-ended a motorcycle while in motion. Both the car and the motorcycle were reportedly traveling at a moderate speed.
Police said that the accident happened when the motorcycle was navigating into Ridgecrest Road. Authorities added that it was not clear whether or not the 26-year-old motorcyclist had signaled that he was pulling out of the road. The driver of the Chrysler, who remained at the scene of the accident, reportedly denied noticing a turn signal. Police are still investigating the cause of the accident.
Consequently, the motorcycle rider and the 24-year-old passenger sustained serious injuries. EMS stated that they received injuries to the head, shoulder, hips and limbs. According to the authorities, the motorcycle operator sustained life-threatening injuries. EMS rushed both of the victims to a nearby hospital for treatment.
However, the driver of the car was not injured, police said.
