A motorcyclist was seriously injured when he hit a car turning in front of him on Pacific Highway East in Fife Thursday afternoon, Fife police said.

As of 4 p.m., Pacific Highway East was shut down between 59th Avenue Court East and 54th Avenue East while police investigated, according to spokesman Tom Thompson.

The collision happened around 2 p.m. when the motorcycle driver, headed south on 59th Avenue Court East, entered the intersection at Pacific Highway East.

A car that was northbound on 59th Avenue Court East turned left in front of the motorcycle.

The collision threw the motorcyclist from his bike.
