A motorcyclist suffered a broken leg Tuesday afternoon when he crashed his bike.

The accident occurred on Wilkinson Road near Welcome Road in Langley around 1 p.m. South Whidbey Fire/EMS Deputy Chief Mike Cotton said the motorcyclist, who was in his 40s or 50s, lost control and broke his tibia and fibula as his bike skid on the road. He added he may have been distracted by a nearby moving van that was partially in the road, but couldn’t confirm whether that caused the wreck.

The extent of the motorcyclist’s injuries didn’t require an airlift. He was transported to Everett via ferry.

“He had a broken leg and some bruises, but was in good spirits and was talking to responders throughout,” Cotton said.

No other vehicles were involved.
