New Bedford Motorcyclist Injured in Dartmouth Multi-Vehicle Crash
A New Bedford motorcyclist has been hospitalized following a multi-vehicle crash Wednesday night in Dartmouth, and police say charges may be forthcoming.
Dartmouth Police and other emergency personnel responded to the area of State Road near Elizabeth Street Wednesday night at around 6:25, for a reported motorcycle crash with injuries.
Police say a 2004 Suzuki motorcycle driven by 36-year-old Justin Luiz of New Bedford had crashed into three separate vehicles while traveling east. Luiz was transported to Rhode Island Hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries, and part of State Road was shut down while the investigation was conducted.
Police say that although preliminary investigation shows that speed may have been a contributing factor, no charges have been filed as of yet.
