A traffic accident on Pembroke Road Friday morning injured a Cadiz man.
The Hopkinsville Police report says 49-year old Douglas McGee of Cadiz was northbound on his motorcycle on Pembroke Road around 9:15 when a tractor trailer attempted to merge into his lane.
McGee laid his bike down on its right side to avoid a collision and he was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical center for non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the semi said he never saw the motorcycle and witnesses backed up McGee's account of the incident.
McGee was not wearing a helmet.
