The Lubbock Police Department is investigating an early morning motorcycle crash that sent one person to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

On Sunday, May 13th, just after 3:30 a.m., officers responded to the area of 5800 Interstate 27 in reference to a single motorcycle crash. Drivers passing by the crash found the male motorcycle rider lying on the road and called police.

The people who called police attempted to help the rider until paramedics arrived and took him to the hospital.

Due to the seriousness of the injuries, LPD Accident Investigators responded to the scene. Through the initial investigation, it appears the rider was traveling southbound in the 5800 block of I-27 and entered the median between the northbound and southbound lanes. The rider then lost control of the motorcycle and crashed.

This crash remains under investigation by the LPD Accident Investigation Unit.
