Just before 6pm on Sunday, October 1st, the City of Cortland Fire Department responded to a motor vehicle crash involving a motorcycle near the intersection of Warren Street and Broadway Ave. in the City of Cortland.
The motorcyclist was found laying in the roadway, but was breathing at the time emergency officials arrived. Broadway was temporarily closed between Pashley Drive and Tompkins Street while attending to the motorcyclists.
The operator of the motorcycle was transported to Upstate Medical Center via Dryden Ambulance due to the extent of their injuries.
X101 spoke with City of Cortland Police Department Deputy Chief, David Guerrera who said an investigation found the operator of a 2014 Jeep, was traveling on Warren Street towards Broadway Ave. when the driver failed to stop at the stop sign.
As the Jeep entered the intersection of Warren and Broadway, a motorcyclist traveling on Broadway, took evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision with the Jeep. The motorcyclist laid the bike down on the road, Guerrera said. They suffered bruising and burns as a result.
Cortland Police ticketed the driver of the Jeep with Failure to Stop at a Stop Sign, and Failure to Yield Right of Way.
Broadway was reopened just after 6:30pm.
