WEST VALLEY CITY — A motorcyclist was hospitalized in serious condition after a crash Wednesday afternoon.

West Valley City police Sgt. Bryan Peterson said the motorcyclist was traveling eastbound on 3500 South. Traffic was heavy in the area and some lanes were at a stop when the motorcyclist continued. Peterson said the motorcyclist "didn’t notice there was another vehicle that was going to turn left and turn left right in front of him" and collided with the side of the vehicle near 1940 W. 3500 South.

The motorcyclist was transported to a local hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries, Peterson said. The driver of the vehicle involved in the crash was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
