(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A motor vehicle crash involving a motorcyclist and car sent one man to the hospital Friday afternoon. 

The motorcyclist, a man in his late 20s, was transported to Mosaic Life Care after suffering moderate injuries.

According to St. Joseph officers on scene, the accident occurred around 12:30 p.m. when a car was pulling out of Speedy's Convenience store on Messaine St. and Noyes Blvd. and heading westbound when the motorcyclist struck the car. 

SJPD said evidence found at the scene and witness testimony said eastbound traffic had stopped for the light at the intersection as well as to let the car pull out of the gas station. Officers said the motorcyclist was passing through parked traffic when he struck the car attempting to pull out of Speedy's. 

Sergeant Kelly with SJPD said the motorcyclist was walking around after the accident, but was taken to the local hospital to check out injuries sustained to his legs. Officers said he did not appear to have head or neck injuries. 

"He was wearing a helmet which probably significantly lessened the impact on him because the helmet had a lot of roadrash on it," said Sergeant Kelly, St. Joseph Police Department. 

Officers said the crash is still under investigation, but said tickets should be pending.
