The motorcyclist was thrown from his motorcycle and into the air before landing on the sidewalk. The 21-year-old was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

Officers at the scene said the man was known to be involved in burglaries prior to today's crash. Police are currently trying to find the VIN number on the motorcycle but cannot find it. They are now investigating whether the motorcycle was stolen or not.
