Sunday motorcycle crash injures one in Atchison Co

(KAIR)--A Grandview, Missouri woman required hospital treatment following an Atchison County motorcycle crash late Sunday morning.

Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie, in a release, says it happened in the 12000 block of K-7 Highway, where 62-year-old Tressa Clardy lost control of her northbound Honda VT1100 motorcycle and crashed.

According to Laurie, the wreck happened as Clardy began to negotiate the curve, as she traveled on the highway near 330th Road, where investigators say it appeared that gravel in the roadway caused her to lose control. It's believed Clardy made attempts to gain control, but the motorcycle instead exited the roadway and traveled into the ditch, where it crashed.

Clardy was transported to Mosaic Life Care, in Saint Joseph, Missouri, by Atchison County EMS, for the treatment of what Laurie says were believed to be non-life threatening injuries to the face, knees, and hips.

Atchison County Rescue and the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks assisted at the scene.

The wreck happened around 11:40 Sunday morning.
