A motorcyclist was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries following a crash Saturday afternoon at East University Avenue and Hawthorne Road, Gainesville Police Lt. Dan Stout said.

Stout said police believe the motorcyclist was eastbound on University while the driver of a car was westbound on Hawthorne Road at about 4 p.m.

Either the motorcyclist or the driver of the car failed to yield at the triangle intersection, possibly running a red light, Stout said.

The motorcyclist was the only person involved in the accident to be transported by EMS to the hospital, Stout said.
