A motorcyclist was badly injured the afternoon of Sept. 15 after colliding with a car at the intersection of Groesbeck and Cass avenues.

The accident happened at about 12:39 p.m.

A black Harley Davidson motorcycle was reported heading south on Groesbeck when it collided with a light green Ford Focus that was turning left from northbound Groesbeck, according to a Clinton Township Police Department statement.

The motorcyclist, a 52-year-old Warren man, was transported to the hospital in serious but stable condition, the statement said. Police didn’t say whether he was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

The driver of the Focus, a 46-year-old Harrison Township resident, was released from the scene without injury.

Clinton Township police are continuing to investigate the accident. Anyone with information can call police at (586) 493-7932.

This is the second crash involving a motorcycle in Clinton Township in the last several weeks. On Aug. 17, an SUV driver allegedly rear-ended a pack of motorcycles, police said. Two motorcyclists were killed in the accident.
