A single vehicle wreck involving a motorcycle in Hopkinsville yesterday evening required a trip to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for the biker.
The incident happened around 6:30, according to the report from Hopkinsville Police, which says 29-year old Caleb Smith of Hopkinsville was westbound on Bradshaw Road when he began to lose control of his bike in some gravel near the Calvin Drive intersection.
Smith’s bike ran off the right shoulder of Calvin and hit a concrete barrier, ejecting him about five feet to the ground. Smith was starting to regain consciousness as EMS crews arrived, but was reportedly showing signs of difficulty breathing. Police say he was not wearing a helmet.
Smith was taken by Air Evac helicopter to Vanderbilt for treatment of his injuries, which were not thought to be life-threatening.
