UPDATE as of 2:45 p.m. Monday: Auburn police spokesman Mike Hirman said the motorcyclist is still at Harborview, with injures that are serious, but appear not to be life-threatening. He said it seems a Dodge Dakota truck turned left in front of the motorcycle, and that there’s nothing to suggest speed, alcohol or drugs were involved.

INITIAL POST: A man suffered life-threatening injuries in a motorcycle-car crash about 6:15 p.m. in Auburn, according to the Valley Regional Fire Authority.

The motorcyclist, about 30, was taken to Harborview Medical Center. The driver of the other vehicle wasn’t injured.

Both northbound lanes of Auburn Way North are blocked by the crash in the 1200 block, according to the city.

The center turn lane is being used to route traffic around the crash, the city said just after 7 p.m.

The northbound lanes were expected to be closed for several hours.

Witnesses reported the motorcyclist went through the side door window of the other vehicle, the Valley Regional Fire Authority said.

Auburn police are investigating.

Further details are not immediately available.
