SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Emergency medical crews took a motorcyclist to a hospital after he collided with a car on Park Avenue just north of Grand Street; that's about a quarter of a mile west of Kansas Expressway. The crash was about 3:40 p.m. Wednesday.

Immediately after the crash, the motorcycle was on top of its rider, who was not wearing a Department of Transportation-approved helmet. First responders provided CPR at the scene before an EMS crew arrived.

The Springfield Police Department sent an accident scene investigation team to the scene. Police blocked the streets near the accident as part of the investigation.
