Elyria – A man riding his motorcycle through downtown Elyria Monday afternoon was struck by a car, that witnesses say was pulling out of a parking space.

Lunette Szymczyk, of Lorain, was going around in circles through downtown looking for a parking space to pick up by the courthouse before the crash occurred. “I ended up on Second Street stopped at the light on Middle Ave when I saw the man on the motorcycle make a right turn onto Second from Court Street. When he got into his lane on Second Street the man driving the blue car started to pull out of his parking space and just hit him.”

Szymczyk, along with others went to the motorcyclist to see if he was ok. “The man that was driving the car I think was the first one checking on the guy and then we all came over just to make sure he was ok and to see if there was anything that we could do.”

Police and Paramedics arrived a short time later Szymczyk said. “I don’t think he was hurt that bad, he was telling us that he was ok but did say that his back was hurting a little.”

Paramedics transported the man to Elyria Memorial Hospital with minor injuries for further evaluation.

Police continued to investigate the crash.
