One rushed to hospital after overnight motorcycle collision

Blackstone Valley

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — Rhode Island State Police are investigating a serious motorcycle crash in Pawtucket on Monday morning.

The crash happened on 95 north south of the Walcott Street overpass at 2:15 a.m.

This part of the highway is reduced to only the high-speed lane, because of construction. The motorcyclist was traveling in this lane at what appears to be a high rate of speed and lost control, according to DOT cameras that caught the crash.

The motorcyclist hit an attenuator truck, placed on the highway construction site to protect construction workers. No construction workers were hurt.

The motorcyclist, a 35 year-old man, was traveling alone. He suffered serious injuries and is currently at Rhode Island Hospital.

Lieutenant Michael Casey says the rider was wearing a helmet, which likely saved his life.

There have been no charges or citations issued as of now.
