TROY – One person was transported by CareFlight following a collision between a car and a motorcycle in the 2000 block of West Main Street on Monday afternoon.

Emergency units were dispatched to the scene around 1:30 and it was soon reported that CPR was being performed on one of the crash victims.

Troy fire and medic units arrived and immediately requested CareFlight and two medic units.

CareFlight was landed on West Main Street, near Culver’s Restaurant. They transported the passenger on the motorcycle.

The driver of the motorcycle refused treatment at the scene. The driver of the car was taken by Troy Fire Department medics to Upper Valley Medical Center for treatment.

The condition of the motorcycle passenger is not yet know. Assistant Chief Eric Krites said that quick action in beginning CPR, by a passer-by, may have played a crucial part in the treatment of the motorcyle passenger.

Troy police are investigating the crash.
