Eldon man injured in motorcycle wreck

October 23rd, 2011 in News

An Eldon man was hurt Saturday night during a motorcycle crash on a Jefferson City street.

Police report Steven R. Beach, 44, was taken to St. Mary's Health Center for treatment following the 10:01 p.m. wreck.

He was driving the motorcycle westbound on McCarty Street at the intersection of Bolivar Street when the front tire started tracking along with the railroad track which diagonally crosses the street there, police indicated. Beach was thrown off as the bike went down onto its side.

He was wearing what police deemed a novelty helmet, not a state-approved helmet.
