    A motorcycle driver was airlifted to the hospital with serious injuries after his motorcycle collided with an SUV in Torrington Friday evening, according to police.

    Police said Nicholas Lorenzo, 19, of Torrington, was driving fast on Torringford Street/Route 183 and weaving in and out of traffic when he struck a Chevy Blazer turning onto East Pearl Road.

    Lorenzo was airlifted to the hospital for treatment of serious but non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

    Neither the SUV driver nor the three passengers were injured. Police said the Blazer sustained moderate damage to the passenger's side.

    Torringford Road was closed between West Pearl Road and Country Club Road while LifeStar landed and authorities arrived on scene.

    Police are still investigating but said it appears as though Lorenzo is at fault. Authorities learned that he was driving with a suspended license and expect to charge him with motor vehicle violations after he's out fo the hospital.

    He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, according to police.
