Traffic backed up for about an hour on Rogers Lane

LAWTON,Okla_A motorcycle rider was sent to the hospital Friday after a van smashed into his bike in Lawton.

Police say the van was heading west down Rogers Lane and was about to turn left onto 38th Street. But the driver decided not to turn and tried to merge back onto Rogers from the turning lane.  

That's when the van hit the motorcycle. The rider was taken to the hospital with a possible shoulder injury and road rash but officers say he should be just fine. 

The accident also caused quite the traffic jam as the road was closed down to one lane while crews got the wreck cleaned up.
