A motorcylist remained hospitalized in critical condition Monday following a collision in Desert Hot Springs.

The crash occurred about 10:45 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Dillon Road and Atlantic Avenue, according to the Desert Hot Springs Police Department. Police said the motorcyclist was westbound on Dillon Road when a Nissan Sentra traveling in the opposite direction turned in front of him.

The driver of the Sentra, a 20-year-old Desert Hot Springs man whose name was withheld, remained on scene and called 911. He was not injured or arrested, police said, but the investigation was continuing.
