PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) ─ A 27-year-old man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition after he crashed his motorcycle in Providence Monday night, according to Providence Police Commander Thomas Verdi.
Verdi said the man was riding down Branch Avenue on his motorcycle and was “doing a wheelie” immediately before the crash.
During the wheelie attempt, Verdi said the motorcyclist lost control and crashed his bike into a car parked nearby. It’s unclear if he was wearing a helmet at the time.
He was transported to Rhode Island Hospital where he remains in critical condition.
