WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah, Oct. 20, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — A motorcyclist had to be transported to the hospital Thursday night after a car attempting a left turn didn’t see the motorcycle and pulled out in front of it.

The unidentified 27-year-old victim was heading south on 4800 West when a passenger car pulled off 3280 South to turn left and collided with the motorcycle, said West Valley City Police Sgt. Brandon Christiansen.

The man was transported to Intermountain Medical Center with “a few broken bones and a punctured lung,” Sgt. Christiansen said, but the outlook for his recovery is good. The man was wearing a helmet.

Christiansen said the driver of the passenger car was cited for failure to yield the right of way.
