A motorcyclist was hospitalized after rear-ending a car on US-23 early this morning.
Deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched around 6:30am to US-23, south of White Lake Road for a car vs. motorcycle accident. Preliminary investigation revealed a 50-year-old Flint resident was operating a 2002 Harley Davidson and traveling southbound on US-23 in the left hand lane when traffic stopped suddenly in front of him. The motorcyclist was unable to stop and rear-ended a Ford Fusion operated by a 26-year-old Flushing resident. The motorcyclist, who was not wearing a helmet, sustained serious injuries from the crash and was transported to Genesys Hospital by Livingston County Ambulance. Alcohol did not appear to be a factor and the Fenton City Fire Department assisted on scene.
