Motorcycle accident closes one lane of U.S. 75

An early-afternoon accident on Tuesday involving a motorcycle closed one lane on southbound U.S. Highway 75 in Sherman.

Shortly after noon a black motorcycle was travelling southbound on U.S. 75 between FM 691 and Fallon Drive when it was cut off by an unidentified car while trying to change into the right lane, said Sherman Police Officer Mark Wood. The motorcyclist attempted to avoid a collision and entered the shoulder of the road before laying the bike down in a grassy ditch adjacent to the roadway.

Wood said the man riding the motorcycle was transported to a local hospital with injuries that are not expected to be life threatening.
