Early Morning Crash Sends One to the Hospital

SAN ANGELO, TX -

An early morning crash on North Bryant Boulevard sent a 55-year-old man to a hospital after his motorcycle was pinned against a semi. 

San Angelo Police, San Angelo Fire Rescue and Crime Scene Investigators responded to the crash just after 8 a.m., Wednesday morning. 

When crews arrived, they found the 55-year-old Carlsbad man trapped beneath his three-wheeled tricycle. According to police, the Silver Toyota Prius ran a red light on 19th Street and t-boned the cyclist that was attempting to turn through the intersection at a green light. 

The crash then pinned the man against a semi-truck that sat still at the intersection.

In a media briefing, Officer Steven Quade with SAPD says that the man was taken to Shannon Hospital by ambulance.

"He didn't look good, buy he was talking, so that's a good sign," said Officer Quade. 

The man did leave with an orange bandage around his leg. Officer Quade says that the driver of Toyota Prius will be issued a ticket for failure to stop at a red light. 
 
Public Information Officer with SAPD, Tracy Gonzalez says a press release will be shared later this afternoon. Be sure to stay with KIDY FOX News First for updates to this story.
