Rochester Police investigate motorcycle crash at Monroe Avenue and Averill Avenue

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - The Rochester Police Department has reported that they're investigating a motorcycle crash that occurred around 5:30 p.m. at Monroe Avenue and Averill Avenue.
 
Police say the motorcycle, operated by a 22-year-old male from Fairport, was eastbound on Monroe Avenue near Averill Avenue, stuck in traffic. An uninvolved vehicle, several vehicles in front of the motorcycle, stopped at the intersection of Monroe Avenue and Averill Avenue because there was not room for him to make it through the intersection.

According to police, a 4-door Chevy sedan, driven by a 20-year-old Henrietta man, was westbound on Monroe Avenue, waiting to turn left (southbound) onto Averill Avenue. When that uninvolved vehicle stopped, the Chevy had an opportunity to turn. As the Chevy was making the left turn, the motorcycle decided to pass traffic on the right, using the bicycle lane – not intended for vehicles/motorcycles.

Police say the motorcycle struck the rear/passenger side of the Chevy, causing driver of motorcycle to be ejected, travel roughly 25-30 feet, and come to rest on the southeast corner of Monroe Avenue and Averill Avenue.
 
According to police, the motorcycle operator was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital by AMR for non-life threatening injuries and was issued tickets for passing on the right, unlicensed operation, and uninsured motorcycle.  The driver of Chevy was not injured.
 
Police say traffic was closed on Monroe Avenue between Averill Avenue and Meigs Street for approximately 10-15 minutes while motorcycle operator was attended to by medics.
