CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A motorcyclist is in critical condition after a crash in Westwood Saturday morning.

Cincinnati police say Rickie Hilbert II, 44, was riding a 2003 Yamaha R6 motorcycle east on Mozart Avenue crossing Boudinot Avenue around 4 a.m. when he hit a curb, lost control and was thrown from his bike.

Hilbert was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Police say excessive speed appears to be a factor in the crash.

It is unclear if Hilbert was impaired.

Witnesses are asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Department’s Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.
