Rider Down 59 South at the Fountains

Saw it around 4:30, southbound feeder road of 59, just past the Fountains near airport. Black bike, looked like a CBR 1000 RR, dragged over to the curb. Fairings mostly removed, but looked still able to roll. Fire truck on scene, 3-4 police cars, debris all over road, all lanes shut down. It was just past an entrance / exit to Razoo's, so maybe a failure to yield by a car entering the feeder. Hope the rider is OK.
Faster and Faster, Slowly! BRAWP it like its hot, BRAWP it like its hot.

I was in Borders studying when I saw the cop cars and ambulance pull up. A friend walked up to the accident and said he saw that the front end was separated from the rest of the bike. They took the rider away pretty quick. I didnt see the accident and am not sure what happened. Not sure if rider fell and car hit him or a car caused the accident. The cops and fire dept were on the scene for quite a while though.

Hope the rider is ok.
I might not be right, but I'm never wrong.

Buddy was in the car right next to it, said the rider popped a wheelie into the truck next to him. I wasn't there, but got the call right as it happened. Hope everyone is okay rider and drivers.
