June 17, 2006

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - A Hedgesville man was injured Friday when he lost control of a motorcycle and was thrown into a rocky embankment, according to police.

Dustan Duvall, 19, had little to no experience riding a motorcycle when the accident happened about 7:30 p.m. on Beard's Crossing Road, off Allensville Road, West Virginia State Police Trooper J.D. Bird said.

For an unknown reason, Duvall lost control of the Harley-Davidson V-Rod and crashed not far from his home. He was wearing a helmet, although Bird said he was not certain if the helmet was an appropriate, certified one.

A family member indicated to Bird that Duvall had never before driven a motorcycle, Bird said.

Duvall was flown to Winchester (Va.) Medical Center. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, Bird said.
