HUDSON — A motorcycle operator was taken to Columbia Memorial Health on Monday afternoon after his bike collided with a car in Hudson, Lt. Anthony Moon of Hudson Police said.
Dimitrios J. Menagias, 53, of Albany complained of leg pain following the crash. The driver of the car, Tyrone Bell, 27, of Hudson, was not injured, Moon said.
At about 4:33 p.m., the motorcycle, which was being driven west on Warren Street by Menagias, went through a red light at the intersection of 4th Street, according to witness accounts, Moon said. The motorcycle struck the front end of the car, being driven north on 4th Street by Bell.
Both Menagias and his bike came to rest on the sidewalk on the corner of 4th and Warren. The impact of the crash tore the grill off the front of the car.
Columbia County 911 sent Hudson Fire Department and Greenport Rescue Squad to the scene.
Paramedics treated Menagias before bringing him to the hospital.
Warren Street was closed, between 3rd and 5th Streets. Fourth Street was closed between Union and Columbia streets until the crash was cleared.
Both vehicles were towed from the scene. Hudson Police investigated.
