reporting that Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has reportedly been treated and released after a motorcycle crash in Middleborough, Mass.
Perry was transported to Morton Hospital and Medical Center in Taunton, at about 2 p.m. (EDT) July 15. Perry, on a 2009 Ducati, was struck from behind by a sedan on Route 44, according to police. 62-year-old retiree Linda O’Brien of Middleboro, who allegedly drove her Chevy Malibu up over the bike’s back tire, was cited for following too close to Perry, and was not hurt.
A preliminary investigation suggests she hit Perry after he stopped at a traffic light and stalled out when he went to drive forward, police said.
Although motorcycle accidents tend to have severe repercussions, WCVB-TV out of Boston is reporting Perry’s injuries “appear to be minor.”
