A motorcyclist who was injured Tuesday morning in an accident on Interstate 70 was helped by the man he rear-ended, Maryland State Police Trooper 1st Class K. George said.
The 6:55 a.m. accident occurred in the eastbound lanes of I-70 east of U.S. 40 when Kevin Redman, who was riding a Honda Shadow motorcycle, rear-ended a Honda CRV, George said.
"Traffic was slowing down as it normally does as you approach (Md.) 66," George said. Redman likely looked down and did not see the Honda CRV that was being driven by Herbert Keen of Falling Waters, W.Va., George said.
Redman was thrown from the motorcycle, George said.
Keen, who is an EMT, got out of his vehicle and performed first aid on Redman, George said.
Redman, 37, of Williamsport, was taken by ambulance to Washington County Hospital, where he was treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, George said.
