LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A motorcycle rider is in serious condition after a Saturday evening accident.

Around 7:30 p.m., 16-year-old Zachary Dale Martinez was driving westbound on 50th Street near the east Loop while 50-year-old motorcyclist Eddie James Mitchell was traveling eastbound on 50th.

Martinez failed to yield the right-of-way to Mitchell's and turned left in front of the motorcycle, causing the bike to crash into the back end of Martinez' car.

Mitchell was thrown off his motorcycle and taken to UMC with life-threatening injuries.

Martinez was not injured in the crash.

Shortly after, police say another biker, who was following Mitchell and had stopped to render aid, was arrested on scene for DWI.
