Police said a 32-year-old motorcyclist remains in critical condition after he was involved in a crash on Wednesday.

The man was seriously injured after the BMW motorcycle he was driving collided with a Chevrolet Impala driven by a 19-year-old woman. The crash happened at the intersection of Frank Scott Parkway and Union Hill Road shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The motorcycle driver was taken to Memorial Hospital and later flown to Saint Louis University Hospital. Police said he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Fairview Heights Police Officer Tim Mueller said no citations have been issued yet, and that police are waiting for an accident-reconstruction study to be completed.
