‘He flew at least 60 feet’: Motorcyclist critically injured in Chinatown accident

BOSTON — Boston Police are investigating a serious accident involving a sport motorcycle and a car in Chinatown.

It happened around 12:45 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Kneeland Street and Harrison Avenue.

Surveillance video shows a Honda Accord turning left as the light appears to turn red before the moment of impact.

The video captures the motorcyclist flying through the air, landing on a metal mailbox and then falling down onto the concrete.

“He flew at least 60 or 70 feet,” said Jackie Chen, who was working at a nearby business. “I feel bad for the guy.”

The motorcyclist who went airborne was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. A relative at the scene said he was in critical condition.

“I’m sure the person driving the car is shaken up too,” said one witness, who didn’t want to be identified. “You want to call it an unfortunate accident, but I’m sure speed probably had something to do with it.”

Boston Police have not yet said who was at fault in the accident.
