Motorcyclist injured in South Burlington crash

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A multi-car crash in South Burlington sent one person to the hospital.

Police say it happened just before 6 p.m. Thursday. That's when they believe an inattentive driver plowed into a motorcyclist and two other cars that had come to a stop on Hinesburg Road.

The motorcycle ended up underneath one of the cars; police found its driver on the side of the road with non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators say it's an important reminder to be alert behind the wheel, especially this time of year.

"Not only do we have the motorcycles we have the pedestrians, bicycles, all the things that summer brings and we have to be a little more attentive of our surroundings,” said Det. Ron Bliss of the South Burlington Police Department.

Police say the driver thought to be responsible could face charges depending on the severity of the motorcyclist's injuries.

That part of Hinesburg Road was closed for three hours following the crash.
