KEYES FERRY ACRES, W.Va. - A 16-year-old Keyes Ferry Acres boy was critically injured Wednesday evening when he wrecked an off-road motorcycle while making a jump off an embankment at Keyes Ferry Park, witnesses and officials said.
Dock Workman, 16, was flown to Fairfax Hospital from Jefferson Memorial Hospital.
Hospital spokeswoman Teresa McCabe said Workman suffered multiple injuries.
The accident occurred about 6:13 p.m. Wednesday.
A group of teenagers met at the park and Workman asked another boy if he could ride his dirt bike motorcycle, said Rhi Weller, 15, of Keyes Ferry Acres.
Workman was on the motorcycle for just a short time when he rode it down a hill and up an embankment, said Jeremy Kincaid, 16, of Blue Ridge Acres, W.Va.
