A motorcyclist was air lifted to the hospital following an accident that occurred Thursday afternoon on W. Lingleville Rd. in front of Dad's Specialty Printing.

“From what we know of this incident through witness statements, the rider of the motorcycle was traveling east bound at a high rate of speed when another vehicle turned left in front of him,” Lt. Robbie Rudder of the Stephenville Police Department wrote in a statement. “The driver of the vehicle said they thought they had time to clear the motorcycle before it got there as the motorcycle was seen in the distance, but according to witnesses it closed in rapidly.

“Reports are very unclear right now, but the rider did sustain injuries to the point where he was transported via Careflight.”
