— Three people were hospitalized after a motorcycle crashed into a car Sunday evening on Cherry Road in Rock Hill.

Justin Cureton, the motorcyclist, was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash and was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte for his injuries, police said on Monday. His condition is unknown.

A driver and a passenger of a Honda car were also transported to Piedmont Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

According to an update Monday from Rock Hill Police Executive Officer Mark Bollinger, Cureton rear-ended the Honda car, which had stopped for an emergency light near a Rock Hill fire station. The driver of the Honda was waiting for a vehicle that was pulling out of the fire station to respond to an emergency.

Rock Hill officers diverted traffic at the scene of the accident near Myrtle Drive, but reopened the road by early evening.

Bollinger said that investigators do not believe speed was a contributing factor in the collision.
