The injured SUU student who was involved in a motorcycle accident last week has been transferred from the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada to a physical therapy center in Provo.

One man is injured after an accident involving a motorcycle and a car occurred at 5:20 p.m. Sept. 24 on the intersection of 800 W. 200 South.

Scott Moxon, a freshman from Provo was seriously injured after an accident involving a motorcycle and a car occurred at 5:20 p.m. Sept. 24 on the intersection of 800 W. 200 South.

Megan Maloney, a junior elementary education major from Las Vegas, said she witnessed the accident and was the first to make a call to police.

Maloney said a male on a motorcycle was traveling west on 200 South when a female driving a blue sedan traveling east on the same street attempted to make a left-turn onto 800 West. Maloney said it appeared the driver of the sedan did not see the motorcyclist so the sedan made the turn early, causing the motorcycle to make impact with the front of the car.

Maloney said after she had witnessed the accident, she immediately made a call to inform police.

“I used OnStar in my car to make the call,” Maloney said. “The driver of the motorcycle seemed extremely disoriented after the crash, like he didn’t know where he was or what had happened.”

The accident caused a temporary shutdown of 200 South to 900 West in order for emergency crews to tend to the victim of the motorcycle and clean up the accident site.

Police officers on site said they were unable to comment on the accident and the current medical state of the motorcyclist is unknown.
