A motorcyclist is recovering in the hospital after police say he was ejected in a collision with a Volkswagen sedan.

The motorcyclist was alert when he was transported, but his condition is unknown. Police say he was wearing a helmet and full protective gear.

The collision happened at the intersection of Cheyenne Boulevard and Wolfe Avenue, near 8th Street, just before 6:45 a.m. Police say the sedan was crossing Cheyenne Boulevard and failed to yield to the motorcyclist. Police also think the motorcyclist was unable to see the oncoming sedan because of the sun glare, and wasn't able to stop or slow in time.

The driver of the sedan will be cited for the accident. It's unknown what charges he could face until the motorcyclist's condition is known.

The intersection reopened just after 8 a.m.
