COTTONWOOD -- A man riding his motorcycle crashed over the State Route 89A center median on Friday morning while traveling with two friends toward Clarkdale. Cottonwood Fire Capt. Larry Dawson says the man is believed to have had a medical issue causing him to pass out while riding. The bike struck the center median, sailed over it and the bike pinned him to the curb. The accident occurred between the Black Hills and Scenic Drive roundabouts.
The patient's two fellow riders rounded the roundabout and returned to stay with him until medical crews could tend to him. He was flown to Flagstaff Medical Center for the trauma.
