At least three ambulances, two firetrucks and an air ambulance responded to a crash involving a motorcycle Saturday afternoon.
The crash happened sometime around 4:45 p.m. on Highway 1 westbound just east of the Clearbrook Road exit, and police say it appears the crash resulted when a tire blew on the motorcycle.
At 8 p.m. only one lane of the highway remained open westbound at Clearbrook.
