Police investigate Liberty Tunnel crash that injured motorcyclist
Police are investigating a two-vehicle crash just outside the Liberty Tunnel that left a motorcyclist in critical condition Friday night.
Officials responded to a report of the crash involving a motorcycle and another vehicle around 11:35 p.m. at the tunnel’s south end, Department of Public Safety spokesman Chris Togneri said.
First responders arrived to find a man who was driving the motorcycle suffering from multiple injuries, Togneri said.
The man was taken to UPMC Mercy hospital, where he was in critical condition as of late Friday. An update on his condition was not available late Sunday.
The initial investigation found that the motorcyclist traveled through the tunnel from the Liberty Bridge and tried to make a left onto Saw Mill Run Boulevard when it collided with a vehicle headed toward the tunnel via West Liberty Avenue, Togneri said.
The two vehicles collided at the intersection outside the tunnel.
Pittsburgh police’s Collision Investigation Unit continues to investigate.
