MVA at Broad & Coxe Sts. in Hazleton
Just before 4pm today there was a motor vehicle accident at Broad and Coxe Sts. in Hazleton.
It involved a female riding a motorcycle and a man driving a Chevy SUV.
When fire crew arrived they noticed that the motorcycle was smoking. HFD Fire Chief Donald Leshko told us there was a passer-by that was able to extinguish the flames and get the woman away from the motorcycle.
The woman was going in and out of consciousness and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The driver of the SUV was talking to medical personnel and was also taken by ambulance but did not appear to have any life threatening injuries.
HPD was on scene gathering information as to how the accident happened.
