The motorcyclist was travelling eastbound on Hwy-11, when the operator of the late model car pulled from the parking lot, into his path.
The motorcyclist and his motorcycle landed in the ditch on the right side of Hwy-11. He sustained facial lacerations, possible head injuries, and what appeared to be a broken leg.
