PUSHMATAHA COUNTY, Okla. (KXII) - A motorcyclist was taken to the hospital in critical condition after hitting a pickup truck in Pushmataha County Monday night.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says it happened around 10:30 p.m. on State Highway 2 near the community of Dunbar.

OHP says Kendall Simpson, 27, crossed over the center line while riding his motorcycle north on the highway and into the path of an oncoming pickup truck.

Troopers say the pickup tried to avoid Simpson by going off the roadway, but Simpson hit the trailer it was pulling.

Simpson was flown to a Tulsa hospital in critical condition with leg injuries.

The driver and passenger of the pickup were not injured.
