Information was received that a motorcycle was in the ditch and the operator was lying beside the motorcycle on the ground.

Investigation revealed that Darrell Hutchinson, 48, was traveling west on Benton Rd when a mechanical malfunction caused him to lose control and run off the road on the right shoulder.

The motorcycle slid a distance of 210 feet on its left side before coming to final rest in a drainage ditch alongside Benton Rd. and ejecting Hutchinson.

Hutchinson suffered multiple injuries and was transported to a local hospital by ambulance for non-incapacitating injuries.
