PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) -  Phenix City Police are investigating a motorcycle crash on 4th Avenue near 21st Street.

According to Phenix City Assistant Police Chief Bobby Casteel, 32-year-old Courtney Moffett was riding on a BMW motorcycle that had been reported stolen out of Montgomery Monday night.

Police say Moffett, a Phenix City man, was traveling northbound on 4th Avenue around 6:30 p.m. when he collided with a car heading west on 21st Street. That car was driven by 19-year-old Ryan Kesler.

Police are investigating whether or not Kesler made a complete stop at the stop sign, but officials say Moffett was speeding on the motorcycle.

The impact caused the motorcycle to catch on fire. Moffett was ejected from the bike and thrown 60 feet.

Moffett, Kesler and three juveniles in the car were transported to the Columbus Regional Medical Center to be treated for injuries.  

Moffett is in critical condition. Kesler has minor injuries.
