Cromwell, Conn. (WTNH) – A Lifestar Helicopter was needed to transport a patient suffering from serious injuries they received after they were thrown from a motorcycle after colliding with a car on Saturday. It happened at the intersection of Main Street (Route 99) and Shadow Lane just before 11:00 pm.  At least one of the people on the motorcycle was ejected. The passenger of the motorcycle appeared to have suffered serious life threatening injuries, and was transported to Saint Francis Hospital by Lifestar Helicopter. They are in critical condition. The driver of the motorcycle was also seriously injured. They were taken to Saint Francis Hospital by an ambulance.

The driver of the car and the passengers did not have any injuries. They were evaluated at the scene and not taken to any hospital.
