The man on the Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle failed to slow down for stopped traffic along Old Stage Road and collided with the Jaguar, a trooper told CBS 17.

The motorcyclist was taken to WakeMed with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.



Traffic was backed up on Old Stage Road at Sunny Lane and some drivers were using Legend Road to U.S. 401 in an attempt to avoid the wreck and traffic.

No one in the Jaguar was injured, he said.
