A motorcyclist was injured Sunday evening when the motorcycle he was driving collided with a vehicle near North 26th and Fort Streets.

The man became pinned underneath the vehicle about 7 p.m., police said.

The police investigation found that a 2009 Chevrolet Equinox was parked on the south curb of Fort Street facing east when the driver attempted to turn north onto 26th Street. In the process, police said, the Equinox pulled in front of an eastbound 2001 Honda motorcycle, resulting in a collision.

The motorcyclist, Enyonam Mensah, 41, of Omaha, was pinned beneath the SUV and was freed by Omaha fire crews. He suffered serious injuries to his pelvis and back. Mensah was wearing a helmet, police said.

The driver of the Equinox fled on foot before officers arrived. The motorcyclist was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center by medics with the Omaha Fire Department.
