The initial report came out at 7:08 p.m. on Tuesday night. 

Police say one man on a motorcycle heading westbound on 107th Street lost control.

He laid the bike down and slid across the center line, causing him to be hit head on by a car heading eastbound.

He was riding with two other motorcyclists at the time, who stayed to speak with officers.

The driver of the car also stopped and was interviewed by police.
