A Warwick man is critically injured after his motorcycle collided with a truck.

The accident happened around 6 p.m. Tuesday on Cowesett Road. Police say, it doesn't appear the 30-year-old motorcyclist was wearing a helmet. He was taken to a local hospital, then transferred to Rhode Island Hospital.

His name hasn't been released yet. The truck driver, 34-year-old Jason Shepard, of Providence, and his passengers were not injured.

Investigators believe the motorcycles' speed may have been a factor, but it does not appear alcohol was involved.
