Decatur, GA — Decatur Police responded to a crash on Sunday evening that sent a motorcyclist to the hospital with “non-life threatening injuries.”

Sgt. John Bender said the crash occurred on May 7 around 10:25 p.m. on Scott Boulevard near the intersection of Landover Drive.

According to Sgt. Bender, “a white Chevrolet Cruze was traveling eastbound on Scott Blvd. in the center lane. A red Honda motorcycle was traveling in the same direction in the outside lane next to the Chevrolet. A vehicle in front of the Chevrolet stopped suddenly, causing the driver of the Chevrolet to swerve into the outside lane. This action caused the Honda to collide into the rear of the Chevrolet. The driver of the Honda sustained injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. No citations were issued.”
