Motorcyclist hurt in I-15 rear-end crash in Washington City 

WASHINGTON CITY, UT – A motorcyclist sustained minor injuries when he struck the back of a vehicle on I-15 in a construction zone before 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. 

St. George News said the motorcyclist – an unidentified 75-year-old man – was able to lay down his 2006 Harley Davidson in order to prevent serious damage to his body and bike. 

It is unclear what exactly initiated the collision, but troopers have ruled out speed as a contributing factor. Officials said the motorcyclist wore a helmet and protective gear. 

The other driver appeared to be unharmed and cooperated with investigators. 

At this time, there has been no indication of pending charges.
