2 people on a motorcycle struck a 22-year-old male pedestrian on Harvard Street near Algonquin Street, Boston police said.
According to Boston Police Department 3 men were injured in a crash. They included a pedestrian, a motorcyclist and his passenger. The crash happened near Ripley Playground, police said. It was reported by a witness that the motorcyclist rode at a high rate of speed into the scene of the accident.
A 22-year-old man was reportedly walking by the side of the road with his two friends. While the accident happened, it appeared that the motorcyclist had lost control of the bike, a witness said. The motorcycle reportedly fell on the side of the road while the two people on the bike were thrown. The motorcycle then hit the man as he was attempting to escape the crash, a witness said. Injuries include, head and back injuries as well as abrasions.
First emergency responders arrived at the crash site as soon as the witness called 911. The passenger sustained minor injuries and was treated at the site of the crash. Meanwhile the pedestrian and the motorcyclist were taken to a nearby hospital for medical care.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, comments on this crash. “It must have been very scary for this group of pedestrians to see an out of control motorcycle heading their way. At this time it is unclear why the motorcycle driver lost control of his bike but we hope the investigation can quickly learn what happened. We are very sorry to see this accident with injuries happen here in Boston. We hope that all of the injured people involved in this accident have a speedy recovery from this crash.”
