Motorcyclist air-lifted to hospital after Thursday crash

A Fairfield man was life-flighted to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City Thursday after he was ejected from his motorcycle.

Darrick W. Cecchini, 51, was traveling northbound on North Fourth Street at 5:37 p.m. on his motorcycle. A 2009 Buick Lucerne driven by Brittany R. Crawford, 27, of Fairfield, was traveling eastbound on West Grimes Avenue.

According to a crash report from the Iowa State Patrol, Crawford pulled out from the stop sign and into Cecchini?s path. Cecchini?s motorcycle struck the right front corner of Crawford?s car, ejecting him from the motorcycle and causing him to land on the sidewalk on the northeast corner of the intersection.

Crawford?s car veered to the north and east, striking the building occupied by My Lucky Day. Crawford did not require medical assistance.

The accident remains under investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.
