STERLING, Conn. (WTNH) — The Connecticut State Police say a dirt bike operator crashed on Plainfield Pike in Sterling on Friday.

Officials said the collision occurred around 8:54 p.m. The dirt bike operator, 23-year-old Charles Corson from Sterling, was traveling without a headlight on a poorly lit area of the Plainfield Pike.

Corson was heading west when a sedan traveling east attempted a left turn into a private driveway and collided with the dirt bike.

Troop D-Danielson was made aware of the collision with initial reports of the operator being unresponsive. Troopers on the scene indicated later that the patient was conscious and alert.

Medical staff responded to the scene, and Life Star was requested to transport the operator to a hospital.
