SCOTTSDALE, AZ - A motorcyclist has been seriously injured after colliding with a pickup truck in Scottsdale Tuesday afternoon.
David Pubins of the Scottsdale Police Department said the motorcycle driver suffered a "severe" leg injury after colliding with a Dodge pickup truck near 68th Street and Thomas around 3:45 p.m.
The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet, according to Pubins.
He was transported to Scottsdale Health Center Osborn with "serious and possibly life-threatening injuries," said Pubins.
The motorcyclist was traveling northbound and collided with a Dodge pickup truck that was turning left into a parking lot at 68th Street and Thomas.
Pubins said 68th Street near Thomas is closed in both directions and will be closed for the next several hours.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.
