A motorcyclist was injured Wednesday afternoon in a crash west of Lyons, requiring a brief highway closure and the victim’s transport by helicopter to an area hospital.

Colorado State Patrol Trooper Josh Lewis said a man riding a 2011 Yamaha motorcycle crashed shortly after 4:15 p.m. on Colo. 7 near mile marker 26, and that the road had to be shut down temporarily to traffic while a helicopter landed, then left to take the crash victim to Boulder Community Health’s Foothills Hospital. Police radio dispatch reports indicated the man was conscious, breathing, but not moving.

Lewis said a condition report on the crash victim, and the reason for the crash, were not immediately available.
