POLICE ROUNDUP: Man hospitalized following Tuesday motorcycle crash

TRI-COUNTY — A London man was airlifted to University of Kentucky Medical Center after a motorcycle crashed Tuesday night, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Jerry Reidenbaugh, 28, of London, was traveling eastbound on Ky. 1956 around 7:45 p.m. when he drove his motorcycle onto the shoulder where he collided with a mailbox and concrete culvert, and finally came to rest near another concrete culvert.

Reidenbaugh was ejected from the motorcycle and sustained critical injuries.  

As of Thursday at noon, the University of Kentucky Medical Center listed Reidenbaugh in serious condition.

Deputy Daniel Grigsby is investigating the cause of the crash.

Assisting at the scene were Detective Josh Scott and Deputy Tyler Morris.
