A multi-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle, a semi-truck, and a car has left several people injured on South Dixie Highway.
The accident occurred when a motorcycle rider veered out of his lane and was reportedly knocked over by a Nissan car. Police said that the accident took place on South Dixie Highway. It was reported that both the Nissan and motorcycle were traveling in the westbound lane when the crash happened.
The impact caused the motorcycle to spin off the road with the driver reportedly sprawled unconscious on the shoulder of the road. The motorcycle then skids across the median onto the opposite eastbound side, police added. A semi-truck coming behind the Nissan rear-ended the car after the first collision causing further damage.
EMS, police and a number of firetrucks arrived a few moments after the crash. The unconscious motorcycle rider was quickly rushed to a nearby hospital by ambulance. The four occupants of the Nissan Sentra also sustained varying injuries and were taken to the hospital. The driver of the semi-truck was reportedly uninjured and didn’t need medical care, according to EMS.
Police are still investigating the cause of the incident.
