A motorcycle wreck in Hopkins County Wednesday evening injured a Madisonville man.
The Hopkins County Sheriff's Office says Joshua Royle of Madisonville had been traveling south at a high rate of speed on Ilsley Road around 6 p.m. when he ran off the pavement near the intersection with Sugar Creek Road.
The bike traveled another 225 feet before overturning several times and ejecting Royle. He tumbled another 200 feet, before finally coming to rest. Royle was taken by ambulance to Baptist Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries to his leg.
