A man was injured after crashing the motorcycle he was driving in Berlin Township.

The accident happened around 6:30 p.m. Sunday on Bedell Road.

Troopers with the Ohio State Patrol said the driver went off the right side of the road, flipped over and was thrown from the motorcycle.

“It’s a normal straight road. There’s a little bit of a bend. Just this time of the year more and more motorcycles are out not paying attention and these things happen,” said Sgt. Brad Bucey.

An ambulance transported the victim down the road to where a medical helicopter was waiting to take him to St. Elizabeth Health Center.

The victim’s name and condition is not known at this time. Troopers suspect alcohol to be a factor in the crash.

The man was not wearing a helmet.
