A 62-year-old man was airlifted to Medical Center of Plano after a motorcycle accident on U.S. Highway 377, officials said.
Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Lonny Haschel said the man was driving a Suzuki motorcycle northbound on Highway 377 Wednesday when he missed an upcoming red light. When he realized he wasn’t going to make the light, Haschel said, the man applied the brakes and kept the motorcycle upright and slid before laying the motorcycle down.
No other vehicles were struck and there were no other injuries, officials said.
The man suffered a head injury and was transferred by air ambulance.
He was wearing a helmet and he is believed to have had a concussion, Haschel said. A spokesperson with Medical Center of Plano said the patient had been discharged as of Wednesday evening.
