A Schuylkill County motorcyclist was injured in a crash on Wednesday, March 13, and was flown to a Lehigh Valley area hospital.

State police at Schuylkill Haven said Bradley C. McKeone, 21, of Pottsville, was driving a 2000 Kawasaki bike northbound on Seltzer Road, in Norwegian Township, about 5:16 p.m. when he lost control while negotiating a left curve.

The bike went onto the berm and struck a metal guide post and cable wires. After impact with the post McKeone was thrown over the handle bars and down a steep embankment.

He was flown from the scene by Medevac helicopter to the Lehigh Valley Hospital, Salisbury Township. Troopers said he will be cited for driving on roadways laned for traffic.
