Crash involves car, motorcycle

FAIRFIELD — An injury accident involving a motorcycle and white Ford Escape closed southbound Pennsylvania Avenue at Utah Street for more than 30 minutes Monday.

The motorcycle and Ford collided, Fairfield police officer Kathryn McCormick said. She didn’t know what caused the collision. The two drivers went to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, she said.

The crash happened at about 11:20 a.m. just south of the intersection. It left part of the driver’s door and passenger’s door on the Ford dented. The motorcycle ended up several yards in front of the car. Leaves from the plants in the median divider were on the pavement, showing the path one vehicle took.

Police closed this part of Pennsylvania Avenue until ambulances took away the victims and the vehicles were removed.

    The motorcycle rider is my sons best friend. People need to watch for motorcycle riders. The SUV driver crossed into the opposite lane and hit him almost head on.Thanks to riding gear he didn't sustain worse injuries.
