The driver of a motorcycle was transported to an Omaha hospital following a two-vehicle accident Monday along U.S. Highway 75 just north of Fort Calhoun.
Washington County sheriff's deputies and Fort Calhoun Rescue responded to the crash near County Road 30 just before 3:30 p.m.
Capt. Aaron Brensel said a 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle, driven by was southbound on Highway 75 when a northbound GMC Yukon attempted to turn left on County Road 30. The driver of the motorcycle, identified as Talon Mak, 31, of Ceresco, locked up his brakes and was unable to avoid a collision with the SUV, which was driven by Dylan Mitchell, 16, of Fort Calhoun.
Firefighters and EMTs with Fort Calhoun Rescue worked carefully for several minutes before moving Mak, who was transported to Nebraska Medicine with unknown injuries.
Deputy Samuel Vacha said Mak was critical, but stable on Tuesday morning.
Mitchell received injuries from the airbag. He was treated at the scene, Vacha said.
The sheriff's office used its drone to better assess the accident scene.
Mitchell was cited for failure to yield the right of way.
