LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - 53-year-old Michael Jones is at University Medical Center with serious, non-life-threatening injuries, after he crashed his motorcycle near 79th Street and Milwaukee Avenue while not wearing a helmet.

The Lubbock Police Department is currently on the scene near Albarran's Mexican Bar & Grill and Popeyes on Milwaukee. All three lanes were blocked off but southbound traffic is flowing near the turning lane.

The crash happened around 4 p.m. when Jones was traveling south on Milwaukee in the far right lane. A blue early 2000 model four-door Chevy or GMC pickup then cut in front of Jones while leaving a Popeyes parking lot.

Police believe Jones clipped the truck, which caused him to roll of the bike. They also believe the driver of the pickup may be a 30-40 year-old black male with short hair.

The driver of the pickup drove away from the scene without stopping to check on the motorcycle driver.
