A biker injured in an accident on Sherrills Ford Road Friday afternoon tried to do a wheelie while going 70 miles per hour.
Todd Steven Greene, of 1120 Christie Farm Road, was taken by medical helicopter to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte following the 5 p.m. single vehicle wreck.
Highway Patrol Trooper D.R. Brackman Jr. reported that Greene lost control of the 2002 Yamaha while attempting the wheelie.
He went off the right side of the road, hitting an embankment and tree.
Greene was thrown from the vehicle and came to rest next to a hose at 5385 Sherrills Ford Road. The bike travelled 133 feet, landing in the yard.
Damage to the bike was estimated at $4,000.
A spokesman for CMC had no information on Greene’s condition.
