Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Jeff Stuart said the rider was taken to University Medical Center in “super critical” condition after a crash on the 4200 block of West Charleston Boulevard, near Valley View Boulevard.
Police said in a statement late Monday that a 2003 Hummer H2 pulled in front of a 2012 Harley-Davidson motorcycle near Charleston and Bedford Road around 2:27 p.m. The motorcyclist, Eric Twitty, 38, swerved to avoid the Hummer and crashed into a light pole. The rider was ejected, police said.
The 49-year-old man driving the Hummer didn’t stay at the scene but was located later and cooperated with police, the statement said.
The investigation was ongoing.
