Northwest Fire District units responded to the area of Grier Road and Galleno Ave, near Marana and Interstate 10,   just after 6:00pm Friday night after a motorcyclist lost control of his bike and crashed into a tree.  Another rider on a separate motorcycle called 9-1-1 to report the incident.  The motorcycle was the only vehicle involved in the accident.

 A 20 year-old male suffered critical life-threatening injuries as a result of the crash.  He was airlifted to the trauma center at UAMC for treatment of his injuries.  The patient was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

The Marana Police Department was on scene to conduct an investigation into the cause of the accident.

No traffic delays or closures resulted from the accident.
