A motorcyclist was severely hurt Wednesday evening after it crashed with a car in Franklin.
Police say the accident happened at 5:30 p.m. at East McEwen Drive near Carothers Parkway. The bike rider was found off the roadway in an area of trees.
According to a press release, traffic reconstructionists determined the motorcyclist was driving east when a woman in an SUV began changing lanes.
The motorcycle was reportedly knocked to the curb, launching the victim into the air. He then collided with a tree.
Police say he suffered life-threatening injuries and is in critical condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. His identity has not been released.
No charges have been filed, but police say an in-depth investigation into the crash is underway. The road was shut down for hours.
