On Saturday, March 29th, at 5:00 pm we investigated a serious two vehicle collision at Butherus and 73rd Street.

A motorcycle being driven by a 27 year old male was westbound on Butherus at a high rate of speed. He originally was riding a wheelie shortly before the collision then struck a Lexus as the Lexus was turning left into a private drive from eastbound Butherus. Though the rider was wearing a helmet he suffered severe injuries and was transported to JCL Hospital in a life-threatening condition.

The roadway was closed for 4 hours for the investigation. Both alcohol and speed are considered factors on the part of the motorcyclist. The Lexus driver was uninjured.
