MARION, Iowa- A Marion man suffered what police called a serious injury in a collision with a motorcycle Friday evening.

It happened just before 5 p.m. in the 2400 block of Seventh Avenue.

Marion police say 55-year-old Raymond Sickles II was trying to cross Seventh Avenue in front of the Marion Motel to the Burger King without yielding the right of way.

Investigators said the motorcycle rider swerved to avoid hitting Sickles but couldn’t.

An ambulance took Sickles to a hospital.

The motorcyclist was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
