Update 9:35 p.m. One man was seriously injured after his motorcycle T-boned a vehicle at the corner of Broadwater Avenue and Eighth Street West in Billings around 8:45 p.m. Tuesday night.

Police have blocked off the intersection at Broadwater Avenue and 8th Street West. Billings Police asked the public to avoid the area for the next few hours while they investigate the crash.

A Chevy Malibu was on Broadwater turning north onto Eighth Street West, didn't see the motorcycle and was struck, Billings Police Sgt. Bret Becker told Q2.

The motorcyclist was taken to a local hospital with a serious injury, Becker said.

No one in the Chevy Malibu was injured. Becker said the Chevy's driver was fully cooperative and will undergo a blood alcohol test as is the usual procedure in serious crashes.

A motorcycle crash has closed at Broadwater Avenue near the intersection of Eighth Street West just before 9 p.m.

One person was transported from the scene in an ambulance.
