Freeland man hurt in motorcycle crash
A Freeland man was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after crashing on his 2002 Triumph motorcycle on Newman Road late Friday.
Keith Nyberg was heading west on Newman Road and went off the road at a curve and hit a culvert, according to the Washington State Patrol. Drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the crash.
Island County Fire District 3 Deputy Chief Paul Busch said it looked like Nyberg went end over end after hitting the culvert about 6:50 p.m. Friday.
Busch said Nyberg was drifting in and out of consciousness after the crash and during transport.
Newman Road was closed for three hours as the State Patrol investigated the accident.
A Whidbey General Hospital ambulance took Nyberg to South Whidbey High School, and then he was airlifted to Harborview.
He was still a patient at Harborview on Tuesday morning.
