Taylorville Resident Sent to Hospital After Motorcycle Crash

A Taylorville resident was sent to the hospital following a motorcycle crash last Friday. Richard W. Lee of Taylorville was traveling north on 1600 East Road. Lee proceeded through the intersection of 1600 East and 1800 North and went past "Road Closed" signs at the intersection. Lee then attempted to go around the barricade that was blocking the roadway and continue north. When Lee attempted to go around the barricade, he hit a wash out in the road that the barricades were blocking. After hitting the wash out, Lee lost control of his motorcycle. The motorcycle then fell on its side and slid down the roadway. The distance the motorcycle traveled after Lee had fallen off is unknown. Lee was transported to Memorial Medical Center for treatment of injuries.
