Moped vs. Motorcycle

July 2, 2013

At approximately 8:30 p.m. on July 1, a 1983 Suzuki moped struck a 2002 Honda motorcycle. Both the motorcycle and the moped were traveling south on Middle Road, turning west on Tanglefoot Lane.  The motorcycle attempted to pass the moped as the moped was turning into a business parking lot.  The moped struck the motorcycle.

 The 24-year old male who was operating the moped was taken to Genesis East and the 24-year old male who was operating the motorcycle refused treatment at the scene.  Both drivers are from Bettendorf.

 The accident is under investigation.
