A motor vehicle accident near Aberdeen, South Dakota, on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, remains unsolved as to who caused a crash that landed a motorcyclist in the hospital. According to Lieutenant Caleb Walters of the South Dakota State Highway Patrol, authorities are continuing to search for a car that cut off the motorcyclist.
At approximately 9:00 p.m., Cameron Wyly, 39 years old and of Aberdeen, was driving his motorcycle west on 24th Avenue Northeast when an unidentified driver of a car turned left from North 19th Street and cut off Wyly. As a result, Wyly’s motorcycle swerved, slid into a parked pickup truck, and stopped. The driver of the other vehicle fled the scene.
Eye witnesses reported the events to authorities following the crash. Witnesses also described the vehicle to the police, indicating that it was a gold or pewter-colored compact car with tinted back windows. In addition, two females between the ages of 16 and 18 years old were in the car. The driver had blond hair and the passenger had dark hair. The car’s license plate supported some sort of organization, but the witnesses were not able to make out which organization it was.
Wyly was transported by ambulance to Avera St. Luke’s Hospital, in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Wyly suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries. According to a nurse supervisor at Avera St. Luke’s Hospital, Wyly remains in the hospital and he is in fair condition.
