STAMFORD, Conn. -- A motorcyclist is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries and the driver suspected of hitting him with his car is facing charges after a Sunday night accident, Stamford police said.

Byron Luna-Perez, 40, of Woodrow Street, Stamford, was charged with second-degree assault with a motor vehicle, felony evading responsibility, operating under the influence, operating without a license, and failure to grant right of way at an intersection. He was held on $250,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford on Monday.

The 35-year-old motorcyclist from Stamford, whose name was being withheld until later Monday, is in Stamford Hospital in the critical care unit with life-threatening injuries, police said. He was wearing a helmet and protective clothing at the time of the accident, police said.

A 2001 Suzuki GSXR 750 motorcycle was traveling north just before 9:30 p.m. Sunday on West Avenue crossing over the Baxter Avenue intersection when it collided with a 2001 Honda Accord, police said. The Honda had been traveling south when it attempted to turn left in front of the motorcycle, police said.  

After the crash, the Honda fled the scene east on Baxter Avenue, police said.

Witnesses at the scene aided police in the investigation; an 18-year-old Stamford man recorded the Honda Accord's license plate number, police said. Officers discovered the Honda parked on Baxter Avenue and after a short investigation arrested Luna-Perez, police said.

Any witnesses to the accident are asked to contact Sgt. Robert Monck or Sgt. Gallagher at 203-977-4712.
