A motorcycle crash has sent a Scioto County man to a Columbus hospital. The Ohio State Highway Patrol reports a motorcycle operated by Mark Hobson, 39, of Otway, was traveling northbound on County Road 35 (Mt. Hope Road) Sunday evening, when Hobson reportedly lost control on the roadway and crashed.
The motorcycle reportedly hit some gravel, causing it to go out of control, sending it into a grassy area.
The OSHP said Hobson was originally thought to have suffered only external injuries and was transported to Southern Ohio Medical Center but later was flown by helicopter to Grant Medical Center in Columbus.
