A 58-year old man was airlifted to a Columbia hospital Friday afternoon after his motorcycle overturned in Saline County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported the accident just before 3:00, on Highway 65 north I-70.

The online crash report indicates a 2006 Yamaha traveled off the road, struck a ditch, and overturned. The Yamaha then skidded across a second roadway, coming to rest in a ditch.

The driver, Clint A. Turner, of Hazelwood, MO, suffered moderate injuries in the accident. Turner was taken to University Hospital, by air ambulance, for treatment.
