The accident was reported at 11:13 p.m. Saturday, and the identities of the man and the motorcyclist have not been released, Wieneke said. According to a report Wieneke received at 2:54 a.m., the motorcyclist was in stable condition at University Hospital.

It has not been determined whether either of the men were impaired at the time of the accident.

Charges are pending and have not yet been released. Wieneke said the investigation is ongoing.
