Wagner crash
A North Carolina man was seriously injured on Wednesday when his motorcycle left West Highway 25/70 in Newport. Newport patrol Officer Shane Bower said the incident involving 70 year-old Richard Wagner, Salisbury, happened just before 11 am near the Dina Drive intersection. A witness told officers that Wagner appeared to slump over and then lean to the right before his three wheeled 2008 Harley Davidson left the roadway and struck the curb. The cyclist said he doesn't know what happened, only that he was traveling the wrong direction and he attempted to turn around. Wagner was found lying behind his cycle and was taken to the Newport Medical Center by First Call EMS. Officer Bower said the cyclist who was wearing a helmet, sustained visible injuries to his head, knee and elbow.
