Local man injured in motorcycle accident

BRIDGEPORT -- A helicopter crew flew a Bridgeport man to a Morgantown hospital after he crashed his motorcycle on Interstate 79 Thursday night, authorities said.

The man, believed to be from the Hinkle & Deegan Lake area, was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital, according to Bridgeport paramedics.

He was driving southbound when he lost control of his 1990 Harley-Davidson Ultraglide Dresser at 6:41 p.m. and was thrown from the motorcycle. The accident occurred between the Jerry Dove Drive and rest area exits.

Bridgeport Fire Chief John Vanlandingham said a United Hospital Center pediatric nurse stopped to assist the patient prior to the arrival of paramedics.

"He has abdominal and chest injuries and the first paramedic on the scene made the determination to call in HealthNet," Vanlandingham said.

Rick Todd, Bridgeport firefighter/paramedic, said the patient was conscious and alert when they arrived.

"He has massive road rash, internal injuries and a head injury," said Todd.

The accident is being investigated by Bridgeport Patrolman Doug Betler. Also at the scene was Anmoore Emergency Medical Services.
