TIM GANNON PHOTO | The motorcycle in Saturday’s crash was not badly damaged.

A motorcyclist was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries after his bike and a tan minivan collided on Route 58 Saturday morning.

A section of Route 58 was briefly closed to traffic while the vehicles were moved off the roadway.

The driver of the van — which was left with a large dent above its front, driver’s side wheel well after the crash — was not hurt.

The accident occurred as the van was turning left onto Route 58 from the Friendly’s restaurant parking lot just before 11 a.m., Riverhead police said.

The motorcyclist, who was heading east at the time, was transported across the street to the hospital by Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance.

Police had not determined if any summonses would be issued.
