UPDATE:

A motorcyclist who was riding without a helmet when he collided with a van in front of the Cheyenne VA Medical Center late Friday morning remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, according to police.

The crash happened around 11:50 a.m. at the intersection of E. Pershing Boulevard and Henderson Drive.

Officer David Inman says the motorcyclist, whose name hasn't been released, was "still breathing" when EMS loaded him into the ambulance, but "it wasn't good."

"We haven't heard any updates from the hospital or anything about his condition, but it was pretty serious when we got him in the ambulance," said Inman.

Inman says no one in the van was injured in the crash, which closed down E. Pershing Boulevard between the roundabout and Windmill Road and a portion of Henderson Drive for about three hours.

Inman says police plan on releasing more details Monday.


UPDATE:

The road is now open.
