Man in serious condition after wreck

College Station Police investigate the scene of an accident involving a motorcycle at the intersection of Harvey Mitchell Parkway and Holleman Drive in College Station Friday in 2012.

A 61-year-old motorcyclist remained in serious condition at The College Station Medical Center Friday evening, where he was taken after being thrown from his motorcycle while attempting to stop at a red light on Harvey Mitchell Parkway.

Richard Myron Corn of Brenham was riding his 2004 Harley-Davidson Road King motorcycle southbound on Harvey Mitchell Parkway shortly after 1:30 p.m. when he tried to come to a halt behind a 2010 Toyota RAV4 that was stopped at a red light at Holleman Drive South, according to College Station Police.

As Corn tried to stop, he was flung from the motorcycle onto the street as his motorcycle continued onward and rear-ended the RAV4.

Though Corn was wearing a helmet, he reportedly was bleeding from his ears when police arrived, according to a College Station officer, who said the 61-year-old was not able to breathe on his own when he reached the hospital.

The occupants of the RAV4 were not injured, police reported.

The accident caused southbound Harvey Mitchell Parkway to be closed from Luther Street to Holleman Drive for about two hours.

The police department's Criminal Investigation Division and Traffic Reconstruction Unit continued to investigate the accident Friday evening.
