LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Police say a Lubbock driver turned her car into the path of an oncoming motorcycle Tuesday evening.  The motorcycle rider suffered what were described as life threatening injuries and as of 10 o'clock news time he was still in surgery. 

Sgt. James Curtis says, "Prior to turning she was blinded by the setting sun and didn't see the motorcyclist and turned in front of him. That's what our investigation has revealed so far."

No names have been released.  Police do not yet know if they will cite the driver of the car with any violations.
