ORIGINAL STORY

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- Police say a motorcycle rider is in critical condition after a fiery crash at Charleston Boulevard and Arville Street.

A passenger on the motorcycle and four people in a white car were taken to the hospital after the crash around 8:50 p.m. Wednesday.

The condition of the passenger is unknown at this time, but the four people in the car are said to have "relatively" minor injuries.

Officers say the car turned in front of the motorcycle.

The impact of the crash ripped the motorcycle apart, spraying fuel and other liquids onto the car, which burst into flames.

The four people inside the car escaped without being burned.

Police say both people on the motorcycle were wearing helmets and they do not suspect drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.

The intersection was closed for hours due to debris.
