TOQUERVILLE, Washington County — Emergency crews, including an Intermountain Life Flight helicopter, responded to a motorcycle crash on state Route 17 just east of I-15 Saturday morning.
According to Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Jake Hicks, at approximately 8:20 a.m. the driver of a 2016 Harley Davidson lost control around a slight curve, causing the crash. When the driver lost control, he went onto the right shoulder and that is where the motorcycle came to a stop.
“He was traveling east from I-15, from Cedar City towards Toquerville,” Hicks said. “This curve here, he just didn’t negotiate that curve with whatever speed he had. It was a single-vehicle motorcycle crash, it was an adult male that lives in the area and he was transported by life flight to the hospital.”
Hicks added that the driver of the motorcycle suffered critical injuries and was transported by Life Flight to the hospital. He was on his way to the hospital to check the condition of the driver after the scene was cleared.
