Hot Springs Police investigated an injury motorcycle crash this afternoon on Richard Street just North of Freida Street.
Evidence at the scene shows that the southbound motorcycle left an approximate 15 foot tire mark prior to the rider losing control and laying the bike over. Scrapes and gouge marks were visible along the bikes path between the tire mark and the motorcycle’s final rest position.
Why the rider lost control/laid it over is not known by me.
Hot Springs Fire & Rescue Troops responded quickly and assisted as necessary.
LifeNet Dispatched an Ambulance Crew to the scene. The adult rider was transported by ambulance to the hospital.
Ernie’s Wrecker Service took charge of the 2013 immaculately clean and very well cared for Harley Davidson bike.
Hot Springs Public Service Assistants took charge of traffic control by routing traffic through the neighborhood. Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 40 minutes.
