Motorcyclist has life threatening injuries after crash

- A motorcyclist out riding with friends Sunday afternoon suffered life threatening injuries after crashing his bike.

The group of 5 were traveling on the ramp from I-85 NB to I-485 in southwest Charlotte around 2:15 pm when the group went to switch lanes and the biker in the middle misjudged, which caused him to crash into another motorcycle.

The motorcyclist, who is from South Carolina, was then thrown off the bike, according to Trooper Ray Pierce with the NC Highway Patrol. Medic says the patient was transported to CMC-Main with life threatening injuries.

Police had the ramp shut down for an hour or so as Troopers investigated, which caused delays on I-85.
