SARASOTA - An accident shut down a major route through Sarasota Saturday afternoon and sent a person to the trauma center.

Sarasota Police say it happened just after 1:30 on U.S. 301 at 18th Street, when a motorcycle crashed into a car.  Officers say it looks like the bike's accelerator got stuck and the bike rear-ended the car.
