OGDEN, Utah – Police are seeking the driver of a minivan who left the scene after being involved in a crash in Ogden Tuesday that resulted in the driver of a motorcycle being dragged for about 200 yards, and Wednesday the injured man was identified.
According to a press release from Ogden Police Department, both vehicles were traveling south on Harrison Boulevard near the 4100 block around 3:28 p.m. Tuesday when the two vehicles collided.
The van is described an older model Chrysler minivan that was dark green or blue and had handicap license plates. That van collided with a motorcycle being driven by 22-year-old Sean Lisonbee, and the man was dragged about 200 feet by the minivan.
The unknown driver of the van fled the scene and has not been located, and Lisonbee was transported to a hospital in critical condition Tuesday.
Lt. Nate Cline, Ogden Police Department, said Wednesday they have received several tips about the van but have not found the driver yet.
Police ask anyone with information about the van or its driver to call Ogden City PD at 801-629-8060.
According to the man's friends, Lisonbee is a partner at Garage Tatoo in Ogden, and the tattoo shop's Facebook page has posted details about a GoFundMe account to support the man's medical costs.
The GoFundMe page states that as of Wednesday, "they have taken him off the sedation and are trying to get him to breath[e] on his own. then they can take the tubes out. he is awake and mostly alert, concentrating on breathing. he has written some notes and chuckled at a couple jokes."
