A motorcycle rider suffered injuries after taking an exit ramp off Interstate 5 and crashing into an overpass barrier in Vancouver on Thursday.
Washington State Patrol troopers said the rider had just taken the eastbound SR-14 ramp from I-5 southbound before slamming his 2000 Yamaha YZ600 into the jersey barrier on the right side of the overpass.
The rider, a 25-year-old man from Woodland, then went over the barrier and fell several feet. He landed on the southbound lanes of I-5.
Troopers said the motorcycle stayed on the overpass.
Paramedics took the injured motorcycle rider to Legacy Emanuel Hospital around 12:45 p.m.
Troopers said the rider simply lost control before striking the cement barrier. No drugs or alcohol were involved in the wreck, but police said he did not have a proper driver's license.
Police didn't release any information about the severity of the man's injuries.
