Life Star airlifted a motorcyclist with life-threatening injuries to Hartford Hospital on Friday night after a crash involving the motorcycle and another vehicle in Manchester.
Manchester police responded to the crash near the East Middle Turnpike and Main Street intersection at about 9:56 p.m. Police determined in a preliminary investigation that the motorcycle was heading northbound when it collided with a vehicle making a left-hand turn from Main Street onto the eastbound direction of the turnpike, according to Manchester police.
The motorcyclist, whose identity has not been released at this time, is listed in critical condition in the hospital, police said. Police have not released the identity of the other driver either, but reported that the individual was not injured.
"While very early in the investigation, it does not appear that speed and/or driver impairment were a factor in this crash," Manchester police said in a news release.
Manchester Police Department's Traffic unit and Metro Traffic Reconstruction Team responded and are investigating the crash. Police ask that witnesses or anyone with information contact Officer Jason Moss at 860 645-5560.
