This must be an error about the motorcyclist "...Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and is listed in serious condition"
Non-life threatening and serious condition in the same line?
In my 40+ years of riding motorcycles I have yet to see a serious condition not life threatening if they collided as the early story is eluding to and judging from the damage.
The last time I personally witnessed a motorcyclist race an old GTO from a stop light, the bike went down within seconds of the green light when the bikes rear tire swung around.
The bike was a BMW with a shaft drive which are known to torque a bike.The event, though an embarrassment to the motorcyclists pride, caused a huge laugh with the real biker crowd who was there on the sides to watch this 'bravado' match as the motorcyclist challenged the car already at the street light.
We have a saying in the biker world....racing a car is bad arithmetic because 3000 (lbs for car) goes over 700 (lbs for bike) one time with nothing left over. (adjust weight to suit)
I hope all involved come out fine though their pride deserves the hurt.
