A Statesboro man remains in serious condition after an accident Tuesday involving his motorcycle and a passenger car.

Brett William Law, 29, of East Drive, was traveling south on Highway 301 South on a 2009 Honda motorcycle, approaching Jimps Road near Gateway Industrial Park, when he ran a red light and struck a 2004 Chrysler 300 driven by John Vincent Nixon, 53, of Cindy Lane, according to Georgia State Patrol Post 45 reports.

Nixon was trying to make a left turn at the intersection, following a green light, when Law’s motorcycle struck his rear passenger door, Sgt. Lisa Bowen reported.

Neither vehicle braked, as there were no skid marks, reports stated.

Law was taken to East Georgia Regional Medical Center. According to his mother, Julie Bernardino, he was then transported to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, where he was treated for pelvic injuries and bruised lungs and remains in the trauma unit. Nixon was not injured, reports said.

Law was charged with DUI/less safe, as he refused to submit to alcohol tests at the scene, according to reports. He was also charged with failure to obey a traffic control device.
