An eastbound motorcycle was in the right-turn lane and attempting to switch lanes when it clipped the back of a white SUV that was stopped in the through-traffic lane.
The motorcyclist was knocked from his bike. People saw the incident stopped and attempted to render assistance to the man while he was on the ground.

The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet, Hoeft said.
The driver of the SUV was not injured.
The incident disrupted traffic in both directions.
