Biker Hurt After Hitting Parked Car

A man is recovering after flipping his motorcycle over a parked car along Interstate 64.

It happened near the Southern split in Lexington Wednesday evening.
A woman says she had stopped in the emergency lane to use her cell phone, when she heard a thud.

The woman says she ran to help the man after he flipped over her car and landed on the side of the roadway. She tells 27NEWSFIRST another woman driving an SUV, who happened to be a doctor, stopped to help as well.

Police say the driver of the motorcycle was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

    To Wow.... You seem like a very angry person with some pent up road rage. It seems odd that agencies once recommended going to shoulder of roads to make phone calls. Is this not true anymore? I applaud the person in the car if they did in fact pull over for a phone call. I would say that those "chatting it up" with friends probably do not do that. Do you own a cellphone? Do you use it? Perhaps the person in the car was calling to report a strange slow motorcycle driver.... Can I be any dumber.... Yes, I did in fact read your entire repsonse....

    @ Laws Location: Lexington "You see....we will no longer be able to park and talk on the cellphone. It also causes accidents." Since when was it an emergency to use the phone in a car ON THE INTERSTATE!!!!!! Can you be any dumber? The lane is for break downs, emergency vehicles or to dodge a car at the most. They arent stop on the side of the interstate where people drive 75mph so you can chat up your friend lanes. Like I said use them safely and not be stupid enough to stop on side of the interstate of all roads try a thing called a PARKING LOT. Further more if the man was looking for hearing aids on a motorcycle he has some fault as well. Same goes for anyone that does any activity that your supposed to do before you start your vehicle. Like adjust the radio and put on your glasses.

    My father and I were directly behind this unfortunate accident. I saw him driving on the shoulder of the interstate at a reduced speed. He was not swerving inside and out of traffic. Apparently he was looking for something and became distracted. I saw the car about 2 seconds before he hit it. My thoughts were that he saw the car and tried to swerve to miss it, because he hit the left side of the car. It was not due to erratic driving. Seeing a person completely helpless and for lack of a better word, flying, through the air is a sight that I hope none of you ever have to experience. At this point, I don't think fingers should be pointed if you don't know the full story. Granted, I'm only telling you what I saw, and there may be more. It was an accident and God was with him, the occupants of the car, other traffic on the interstate, and my father and me. The motorcycle was careening towards us and without the Lord, we may not be here today. God bless to all who stopped to help.

    Regardless of which lane the car was in, and whether or not it was stopped , slowing, or still moving, the motorcycle struck it in the rear. That puts the fault on the motorcycle operator.

    I'm confused, did either person have a real reason to be in the emergency lane?

    You don't drive that slow on an interstate. Looking for hearing aids that were lost a week ago???? Didn't he think they would have been run over by now and useless?

    You have got to be kidding me! Looking for hearing aids on an interstate shoulder? Isn't that like a needle in a hay stack. Man, if he has that much passion for finding missing items in dangerous areas, I should have him along my side when I play golf!

    He was reckless and careless trying to find hearing aids while riding a motorcycle on the interstate. His age is not important, but at 64 he should have known better.
