CHICO, Calif. -

A motorcyclist collided with an SUV in Chico Monday afternoon, and then was dragged under the vehicle.

The collision happened around 3:30 p.m. at East 9th Street and Cypress Street.

A motorcyclist who was riding alongside the injured man told KRCR News Channel 7 says the two were riding Eastbound on 9th Street.

The motorcyclist collided with the side of a Subaru Forester, and was dragged under the vehicle a short distance.

The motorcyclist was conscious as he was being treated at the scene.  It's not clear which vehicle had the right of way.

The crash tied up after school traffic at the busy intersection.  Traffic was detoured as medics treated the victim.
