EL PASO - A motorcyclist is fighting for his life tonight, after crashing with an SUV in east El Paso.
Police on the scene are describing it as a "very serious" motorcycle accident. Investigators don't know how it happened; they told us a motorcycle and a large black SUV were traveling southbound on Hunter near Alpine, when they somehow crashed.
A man who lives near the accident site tells Newschannel 9 it's a bad wreck.
"It's pretty scary to see it. We live right here on the corner house. We have kids, so it's a big worry for us,” said Luis Marin, an east El Paso resident.
The motorcycle driver was taken to Del Sol Medical Center with serious injuries. Police said the woman driving the SUV was not hurt.
Police said it's too early in the investigation to determine if speed or alcohol are factors in the crash.
