A man was transported to Johnson City Medical Center after being involved in a single-vehicle motorcycle wreck.
Trooper Tim Hendrix of the N.C. Highway Patrol said the man was driving toward Boone on Highway 321 North when it appeared he drove off the right side of the road, overcompensated the turn back onto the roadway and turned his motorcycle on its side, throwing him off his bike.
Hendrix said the wreck happened about 2:00 Thursday afternoon in between Bethel Road and Guy Ford Road.
The driver, whose name was not released, could not be airlifted to Johnson City because the foggy and rainy weather kept the area helicopter services grounded. The man was taken by ambulance to Watauga Medical Center, then transferred to Johnson City Medical.
Hendrix said the driver suffered broken ribs, a broken collar bone, and a head injury.
The N.C. Highway Patrol, Beaver Dam Fire and Rescue, Cove Creek Fire Department, and First Responders from the immediate area were among the emergency personnel who responded to the scene.
