CLEVELAND -- A Cleveland paramedic is recovering after being thrown from his motorcycle during a morning rush hour crash.
According to police, the paramedic was on a motorcycle headed eastbound on I-90 in the center lane just past the East 22nd Street ramp when he clipped the back of a Saab near Chester Avenue.
The driver of the Saab had stopped his car due to heavy merging traffic from the I-77 northbound ramp.
The paramedic was thrown from his bike after making contact with the car. Police say the rider may have then been struck by a passing vehicle.
The paramedic is at Metro recovering from injuries including a fractured leg. The driver of the Saab was not hurt.
The crash snarled traffic along I-90, I-77 and I-71 for much of the morning commute.
It was just one of several crashes that created an extra long commute for many Thursday morning including one in Akron on Broadway and one that closed a portion of the I-271 express lanes.
All highways and ramps have reopened.
