One person was injured in a motorcycle wreck just south of Crofton Wednesday afternoon.
The incident happened around 3:30 near 10600 Madisonville Road. Christian County Sheriff’s Captain Chris Miller says 51-year old Rodger Orten of Hopkinsville was the operator of the motorcycle, which was the only vehicle involved.
Orten told police a car passed him and he got too close to the shoulder. He went into the ditch and hit a culvert, flipping the bike over onto the road and throwing Orten into the ditch.
Orten was conscious when responders arrived and he was flown by Air Evac to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.
