Bike v Car hamilton

A wrecked motorcycle lies on the ground after a car turned in front of it on Hamilton Boulevard in Sioux City June 1. The motorcyclist, Levi Weber, suffered serious injuries and was put into a coma for more than 20 days. After two months of rehab, Weber was able to come home in late August.

SIOUX CITY | A motorcyclist was rushed to the hospital after he collided with a car on Hamilton Boulevard around 6:30 p.m. Thursday.   

Sioux City Police Sgt. Judy Kellen said a westbound Chrysler on Wesley Parkway was attempting to turn south onto Hamilton and drove in front of a male motorcyclist heading east on West 14th Street.

The motorcyclist hit the passenger's side of the car and apparently slid underneath but Kellen was unsure if he was run over. 

The unidentified male was rushed to a local hospital. Kellen was unaware of the nature of his injuries. 

Blood and broken shards from the motorcycle were scattered across the ground while police partially closed off the intersection while the scene was inspected. 

Felicity Pedersen witnessed the crash when she was heading out to make a delivery for nearby Domino's Pizza.

"The motorcyclist went down and was laying on his left side and wasn't moving, and then I saw a gentleman run out to see if he was OK," she said. "I'm a motorcyclist myself so this really scared me and I am shaken."

"It did not look good," she said.

Kellen said the crash is under investigation.
