A truck & motorcycle collide in West Lubbock Wednesday evening

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Just after 5 p.m. Wednesday evening, a pickup truck and motorcycle collided in West Lubbock. 

NewsChannel 11 was told that the driver of the motorcycle turned into the intersection of 19th and Louisville at the same time that a pickup truck was driving east into the intersection. The driver of the pickup truck could not stop in time to avoid hitting the motorcycle. 

Initially police thought the motorcycle rider suffered life-threatening injuries but after EMS arrived on scene, LPD felt more confident that the rider would survive.  So far the names of the people involved have not been released. We are told that the sun could have blinded the motorcyclist at the time of the collision.
