Rider Down on 290 Last Night

A MOTORCYCLE RIDER HAD TO BE RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL BY HELICOPTER.
AROUND 11 LAST NIGHT... THE CYCLIST LOST CONTROL ON 290... JUST PAST SKINNER.
INVESTIGATORS SAY HE SLAMMED INTO A CONCRETE BARRIER AND THEN SLID ABOUT 100 FEET.
THE MOTORCYCLE FINALLY STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD.
THE WESTBOUND LANES OF 290 WERE SHUT DOWN FOR SEVERAL HOURS.

Hope the rider is ok.

What time last night? It rained a little around here yesterday afternoon, but not so much the roads would have been slick late at night.

On 290 just after Skinner there is a mild S-bend... hauling or riding a wheelie may have got him.
