A motorcyclist reportedly was injured Friday morning in a three-vehicle crash in east Athens.

The motorcycle was traveling northbound on Cherokee Road, near the entrance/exit at Midgard Self-Storage shortly before 8 a.m., when it was struck by a car that was exiting the storage facility to travel south on Cherokee Road, according to Athens-Clarke County police spokesman Geof Gilland.

The biker was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries that included a fractured leg, Gilland said.

No other details were immediately available from police.
