The Great Falls Police Department on Tuesday released information about Monday’s crash.

The crash was reported at about 3:12 p.m. near the intersection of 10th Avenue South and 41st Street.

The GFPD says the initial investigation shows that the passenger vehicle was westbound on 10th Avenue South and the motorcycle was eastbound.

The driver of the car was preparing to turn left into a business and appears to have not seen the motorcycle heading east.

The car turned in front of the motorcycle, and the motorcycle struck the front end of the car; the force of the collision sent the motorcyclist flying over the car.

The motorcyclist sustained “numerous substantial injuries to include a head injury,” according to the GFPD, and was not wearing a helmet.

The motorcyclist was taken by ambulance to Benefis Health System for treatment and as of Tuesday morning remains hospitalized.

The driver of the car was not seriously injured, and was cited for a Right Of Way violation.

The GFPD noted that numerous people stopped to assist and render aid to the motorcyclist prior to the arrival of emergency personnel.
