(KSL News) A morning traffic accident in West Valley sent a motorcyclist to the hospital in critical condition.

Police say the man was riding on 4100 South near 3200 West when he was hit by a truck making a left-hand turn. They say both drivers had a green light, but believe the truck didn't yield to the motorcycle. The motorcyclist was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Police say today's accident serves as a reminder for drivers to be more alert. "Well, it's motorcycles: You got to look for them and they're hard to see sometimes," West Valley Police Capt. Steve Sandquist said.

Police also say motorcyclists should remember to wear a helmet. Unfortunately, this man was not wearing one.
