COLUMBIA — A car struck a motorcycle on Providence Road, injuring the rider and halting northbound traffic Friday afternoon.

The accident occurred shortly before 1 p.m. when a car heading northbound rear-ended a motorcycle just after the Providence Road and Rollins Street intersection.

The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, Columbia Police officer Alex Kaneaster said. He was transported by ambulance to an area hospital. Kaneaster said he didn't know the extent of the motorcyclist's injuries.

The other driver was unharmed.

The accident caused northbound traffic on Providence Road to come to a standstill for about 15 minutes, Kaneaster said.
