Rescue Workers Lift Car Off Pinned Motorcyclist
According to the Springfield Police Department, the rider hit the parked Buick at such a high rate of speed as to lift the back of the car, allowing him to slide beneath it. As the bike stopped, the car settled back down, pinning the rider.
Firefighters had to use specialized equipment, including air bags to safely lift the vehicle off the rider. He was then extracted, and transported to Baystate Medical Center with massive internal injuries.
The rider, David Garcia of Hancock Street, was issued a ticket for a revoked license.
