PHOENIX - Police say a motorcyclist suffered life-threatening injuries in an accident in the north Valley early Wednesday morning.

Phoenix police Lt. Russ Frederiksen said officers responded to the accident near 38th Drive and Peoria Avenue where a vehicle and the motorcycle collided around 12:15 a.m.

The 23-year-old motorcyclist was taken to a local hospital in serious condition with life-threatening injuries.

Frederiksen said the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet but was not alert when officers arrived.

The driver of the vehicle and witness were being interviewed and the cause of the accident is under investigation.
