KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A motorcyclist is in life-threatening condition after a crash. 

Just after 5:15 p.m., Kansas City police were called to 38th Street and Southwest Trafficway on a traffic crash between a motorcycle and a vehicle. 

A white Nissan Sentra was wanting to turn left onto the southbound lanes of Southwest Trafficway from 38th Street, so vehicles in the northbound lanes stopped so she could pull out and turn. 

Then, a black Suzuki motorcycle pulled around the stopped cars and drove into the left side of the Nissan in the middle lane. 

Witnesses said the motorcycle, driven by a 27-year-old Gladstone man, was speeding around the vehicles.

The motorcyclist was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. 

The driver of the Nissan complained of minor pain, but as the scene was wrapping up, ultimately requested an ambulance due to back pain.

The roads were closed for more than an hour due to the accident.
