A motorcyclist was taken by helicopter to the hospital with life-threatening injuries after a crash near the intersection of E. Okeechobee Road and Hialeah Drive.
The motorcyclist, who was identified as a man in his late twenties to early thirties, hit the passenger side of a car on the intersection of E. Okeechobee Road and Hialeah Drive and was ejected from his motorcycle, said a spokesperson for Miami Police Department. He said police were called just after the crash.
A passenger in the car was injured and in pain by the time the rescue crew arrived, police said. He was treated for a whiplash injury by paramedics. He is expected to recover soon in spite of this auto crash injury. The motorcyclist, on the other hand, suffered a serious head injury and was airlifted to the hospital. His injuries are said to be life-threatening.
No further information about the identities of the crash victims was given as at the time of filing this report. Police officers are investigating the car crash and associated injuries.
E Okeechobee Road and Hialeah Drive are shut down at this time as crews are working hard to investigate the crash and clear the leftover debris from the crash, authorities said. This auto-crash has led to traffic delays on this route. Drivers are advised to make use of alternative routes.
