A collision between a motorcycle and another vehicle closed a section of Middle Country Road in Selden in both directions Wednesday night, Suffolk police said.

The crash took place about 9 p.m., police said, and the roadway remained closed as of 11:05 p.m.

Selden Fire Chief Joseph Leavens said his department's ambulance responded to the scene at Middle Country Road just east of High View Drive at 9:08 p.m., and took the seriously injured motorcyclist to Stony Brook University Hospital.
