Car/Motorcycle Accident East of Downtown Casper
There was an accident Tuesday afternoon involving an automobile and a motorcycle, but fortunately, it resulted in only minor injuries.
A driver was pulling out of a gas station at 2nd Street and Mckinley Street, and instead of pulling into the nearest lane to turn right, crossed into the center lane.
It was there the driver nosed into a motorcycle already occupying the lane, injuring the rider.
Casper Police Officer Mitch Hill says the rider actually handled the situation well, and was sent to the hospital with minor injuries.
The driver was issued a citation, and Officer Hill asked that motorists use the nearest lane when turning, and not to cross over to another. They also urge everyone to watch out for motorcycles.
