Motorcycle-car crash on Grand Avenue sends one to hospital with serious injuries

A crash involving a motorcycle and a car on Grand Avenue in Newport sent one person to University of Cincinnati Hospital this evening.

The crash shut down Grand Avenue from the I-471 south ramp in Newport to Churchill drive heading into Fort Thomas. One motorcycle and one vehicle were involved, heading southeast on Grand Avenue towards the I-471 northbound ramp.

The motorcyclist was transported to UC and the motorcycle, heavily damaged, was still on the roadway as of 8:30 p.m.

No more information is known about that person's status at this time.

Newport, Fort Thomas and Campbell County Police, along with accident reconstruction teams are currently on site trying to determine how the crash occurred.

Police told Fort Thomas Matters that emergency responders were leaving from St. Elizabeth Fort Thomas from a transport when they came upon the accident. Police and emergency responders were then dispatched to the scene at 6:30 p.m.

There was visible damage to the back of an Infinity sedan that was also involved in the crash. Police noted that the bystanders on scene were assisting the motorcyclist and providing information to police and the reconstruction team.

  1. I was one of the good Samaritans at this accident, if this story could be updated I'd appreciate it. I'm hopeful that the motorcyclist made it.
