A motorcyclist is sent to the hospital with a broken leg and broken hip after an accident early Thursday afternoon.
Lubbock Police say a 21-year-old Hispanic male was going through a red light at the intersection of 19th and Avenue Q when he tried to stop. That caused his bike to slide across the intersection, where he was hit by a van, then bounced into a truck.
The motorcyclist was taken to UMC with serious injuries. Police say he was not wearing a helmet.
