Motorcyclist struck on Green Street

Transported to Anna Jaques with minor injuries

NEWBURYPORT — A Harley Davidson rider driving down Green Street toward the waterfront escaped serious injury yesterday around 10 a.m. when his motorcycle was struck by an SUV.

Newburyport police Sgt. Howard Adams said it appears the female driver of the Volkswagon Touareg didn’t see the motorcyclist as she took a left-hand turn onto Green Street from Washington Street near Immaculate Conception Church.

The motorcycle rider, whose name wasn’t released by police, was transported to Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport for what Adams called minor injuries. The SUV sustained minor damage to the front passenger side, while the motorcycle appeared to be intact as it was rolled onto the back of a flatbed tow truck.

A police officer was heard telling the middle-aged operator of the SUV that the person she struck wasn’t seriously injured.

Adams said the SUV driver was issued a written warning for failing to stop at a stop sign.

Assisting Newburyport police at the scene were local firefighters and an Atlantic Ambulance crew. Green Street, located near downtown Newburyport, is home to the police station and adjacent to City Hall. The road remained open to traffic during the response.
