Hot Springs Police Officer Rideout investigated an injury crash involving a motorcycle Monday Afternoon on Central Avenue in front of the Doubletree Hotel.
Evidence at the scene included an approximate 40 ft., skinny skid mark that tracked southbound to the point of impact, a crashed motorcycle and a white car with rear end damage. It appears as though the southbound motorcycle may have struck the back end of the white car at a driveway intersection. The car went ahead and pulled into the driveway/parking lot. The motorcycle went out of control, fell down and came to final rest on it’s side on the southbound side of the highway.
Hot Springs Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly. They blocked the affected traffic lane, immediately went to assist the injured motorcycle rider and otherwise assisted as needed.
LifeNet Dispatched an Ambulance Crew too the scene. They met with the injured rider. It is unknown to me whether anyone was transported to the hospital.
Traffic flow was interrupted for at least 45 minutes.
