Motorcycle accident


A motorcyclist was injured and transported to the hospital on the morning of Wednesday, May 25 after the motorcycle he was riding collided with the back of a box truck near the intersection of Wrightsville Avenue and Eastwood Road, witnesses said. Phil Funderud, a brick mason working nearby, said the motorcyclist tried to slow down, causing the bike to fishtail, when it hit the truck. “It was like something you see online,” Funderud said. The motorcyclist flipped forward onto the ground before standing back up, but an injury to his leg forced him to sit back down, while the motorcycle continued through the intersection before coming to a stop by the sidewalk. Funderud said it was clear the motorcyclist injured his leg. “It looked like a warped piece of wood,” he said. “There was a lot of blood. His shin is broken for sure.” ~ Terry Lane
