Serious Injury Crash On Patterson Between 12th and 7th Streets; All Lanes Closed At This Time #GVCopBeat
The Grand Junction Police Department is investigating a serious injury crash that happened at approximately 4:30 p.m. today at the intersection of Patterson Rd. and 26 3/4 Rd (between 7th St. and 12th St.).
At this point in the investigation we believe an SUV driver was making a left turn onto Patterson Rd and pulled out in front of a motorcycle rider who was heading westbound on Patterson. The two vehicles collided, and the motorcycle rider suffered what appear to be serious injuries. He was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital. He was not wearing a helmet.
All lanes of Patterson between 7th St. and 12th St. are closed at this time. We are bringing out our accident reconstruction team, and it will likely take several hours for officers to complete their on-scene work. We will send an update when the road reopens.
