A 2008 Yamaha 1000, driven by William E. Sweigard, 43, was westbound at 10:20 p.m. Monday when it struck some gravel, lost control, traveled off the right side of the roadway, struck an embankment and ejected Sweigard.

Sweigard received moderate injuries and was taken to Salem Memorial District Hospital by Salem Ambulance, and then by airlifted to University Hospital in Columbia.

The Yamaha sustained moderate damage and was removed from the scene by Whitaker’s Towing.
