A crash in Boardman sent a motorcyclist to the hospital on Saturday.

Officers said the motorcyclist was heading westbound on U.S. Route 224 when a car tried to turn into Mill Creek Park.

The driver of the car claimed she didn’t see the motorcycle coming toward her. The driver of the motorcycle was unable to stop and hit the car.

An ambulance took the male driver of the motorcycle to St. Elizabeth Health Center to be checked out. Officers said he was in stable condition.

“People need to pay attention to motorcycles especially this time of year, they’re hard to see when coming from a distance or the sun. Just make sure before you’re turning, you’re looking a couple times to make sure that you don’t see any motorcycles coming,” said Sgt. Brad Bucey, Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The driver of the car will be cited for the crash.
