FALL RIVER — A motorcyclist was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries after hitting a car that had failed to stop at a red light on Monday night.

Fall River police said at around 8:20 p.m. Monday, emergency first responders were called to the intersection of Brayton Avenue and Jefferson Street for the reported crash involving a Harley Davidson motorcycle and a car.

Witnesses told police that a gray Chrysler sedan had failed to stop or yield before turning north onto Jefferson Street at a red light.

As the sedan turned north, a motorcycle heading west on Brayton Avenue hit the car's passenger side.

The collision threw the motorcyclist forward and onto the road, according to police.

Police confirmed that the Harley Davidson motorcycle driver had the right of way at the time of the crash.

She was taken to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment of injuries that police described as serious, but non-life-threatening.


Police said the Chrysler driver was taken to Saint Anne's Hospital with minor injuries, and was cited at the scene for driving without a license and failing to yield.

Authorities did not identify either of the people involved in the crash.

No further details were disclosed.

See How Much This Fall River Intersection Has Changed in a Decade

Well this is surely a blast from the past. While exploring Google Maps' street view feature recently, I came across an old still from 2012 mixed in with the more recent ones. It showed an almost decade-old look at Fall River's New Harbour Mall, which is now dead and has been replaced by the stores at the SouthCoast Marketplace. The more I looked around the intersection on William Canning Boulevard, the more I began to see remnants of the past, some that may now be long-forgotten for some. This Fall River intersection has changed so much in the past near-decade, but if you're needing a little look in the rearview to see how far it's come, check out some of the following stills.
