A motorcyclist is in critical condition at Erlanger Medical Center after he was hit by a car last week in Chattanooga.
The 57 year-old man was struck nearly head-on by a vehicle that crossed the northbound lanes of Highway 58 into the southbound lanes. A 24 year-old female driver was traveling north when she failed to stop quick enough to slowing traffic. She swerved into the center lane to avoid a collision, but in turn hit a car waiting to turn left.
After hitting the car, she continued into the path of oncoming traffic. She struck the motorcyclist, who is suffering from serious injuries. Charges are pending on the outcome of the investigation and toxicology test results.
