LIVERPOOL, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Minor injuries have been reported after a Wegmans tractor trailer hit a motorcycle in the Village of Liverpool on Tuesday evening.

According to the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Deputies, the driver of the Wegmans truck was at a red light heading southbound on Vine Street, and when the light turned green, he hit the motorcyclist from behind.

The driver of the tractor trailer did not realize the motorcycle was in front of him and pushed the motorcyclist about 150 forward before another motorist flagged him down.

The motorcyclist was unable to get off the bike, since it became wedged under the tractor trailers front bumper.

Deputies say the motorcyclist sustained minor abdominal and leg injury and was transported to Upstate University Hospital. Those injuries are considered non life threatening.

The driver of the tractor trailer was not injured.

The driver of the tractor trailer was ticketed for following too closely and the motorcyclist was ticketed for operating out of class.
