A one-vehicle traffic crash at approximately 4:07 p.m. on Sat. March 21 left the driver of a 1999 Harley Davidson motorcycle, Jonathan D. Edwards, 23, of Nashville injured.
The crash occurred on State Route 15 eastbound, just west of Beaucoup Township.
Edwards lost control of his bike while negotiating a curve. He exited the road on the outside of the curve and struck a ditch embankment, when he was ejected. The vehicle continued on for approximately 227 feet before coming to rest after striking a tree.
Edwards was transported to St. Louis University Hospital by helicopter, where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Edwards was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
