A Salina man was hurt in a motorcycle crash Tuesday evening.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol the crash involved a 2007 Kawasaki motorcycle and a 2005 Kenworth truck towing a trailer.

The patrol says 22-year-old Codey Shute was riding  the motorcycle , headed north on North Ninth Street, when he collided with the truck.

Shute tells KSAL News he was proceeding though a green light when the truck failed to yield and made a left hand turn in front of him, headed onto the east-bound Interstate 70 on-ramp. Shute was ejected from the bike as it slid into the truck’s trailer.

Shute was transported by EMS to Salina Regional Health Center with suspected serious injuries including a broken foot, a knee injury, and lower leg injuries. The driver of the semi was not hurt.

The crash happened at around 5:30 Tuesday evening on North Ninth Street where it intersects with I-70.
