In calls to 911, people described two motorcycles colliding, possibly while changing lanes, causing one of the riders to crash, sustaining a wound to their head.
One caller said that the crash victim wasn’t responsive, but was breathing and moaning, with a laceration on their head. A voice could be heard in the background shouting, “Stay with me,” and calling the victim’s name.
A different caller described the rider being thrown in the air, and another described seeing a motorcycle skidding down the street.
All callers described a group of people running to help the injured rider. The caller who described the victim’s injuries told dispatchers that the group was using a shirt to apply pressure to the wound.
Harshman Road was blocked at the intersection with Brandt Pike and Needmore Road while police investigated.
