    injured in crash

    MIDDLETOWN SPRINGS — A motorcycle rider was injured after crashing into the back of a car, police said.

    Jeffrey Greene, 34, of Middle Granville, N.Y., was riding a 1992 Harley-Davidson motorcycle east on West Street behind a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire driven by Fernando Parker, 52, of Middletown Springs, at about 4:10 p.m. Friday, according to Vermont State Police.

    Parker stopped to make a left turn into a driveway, police said, and Greene was unable to stop his motorcycle before it hit the car’s rear bumper.

    The motorcycle tipped over on its right side and slid into a ditch on the westbound shoulder of West Street, about 12 to 15 feet from the crash, police said.

    Greene fell off the motorcycle and slid 8 to 10 feet on the road, police said. He was taken to the Rutland Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for cuts and bruises.

    Parker, who was wearing a seat belt, was unhurt.

    State police were assisted by the Middletown Springs Fire Department and the Poultney Rescue Squad.
