LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A 35-year-old man suffered serious injuries Friday afternoon after crashing a new 2012 Harley Davidson almost immediately after he bought it.

A salesman at Wild West Harley Davidson tells us the man had just bought a new motorcycle at Wild West at 5702 58th Street and crossed to Frank Brown GMC across the street where he lost control of the motorcycle and crashed between two vehicles on the lot.

A salesman at Frank Brown who spoke to the victim after the accident tells us the rider had just received his motorcycle license and went to buy the bike.

The salesman says the motorcycle hit the curb and the rider was thrown off the bike landing onto an SUV windshield in the Frank Brown car lot. The salesman told KCBD he believes the rider's helmet saved his life.

After the driver hit the two SUVs, the motorcycle burst into flames, catching other vehicles in the parking lot on fire. At least two of those SUVs were totaled.

The rider, 35-year-old Michael Lamar, was released from UMC Sunday night.
