Posted: Updated:

A motorcyclist sustained a broken leg after he was dragged underneath a pickup Thursday, according to Dalton police.

Oscar Adams, 22, of Chatsworth was traveling west on the Walnut Avenue Bridge near Abutment Road on a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle when he rear-ended a black Ford Explorer driven by 33-year-old Stephen Bingham, also of Chatsworth.

The crash happened just before noon, according to a released statement. Adams was thrown from his bike. Both he and the bike crossed the center lane into oncoming traffic.

Rexie Patterson, 35, of Dalton was traveling east over the bridge in a Ford F-250 truck and attempted to stop but was unable to before Adams slid underneath his truck and was dragged for a few feet. Adams was wearing his helmet and other protective gear at the time.

Dalton Fire Department, Dalton Police Department, and Hamilton EMS responded to the collision. 

Adams was taken to Hamilton Medical Center for treatment and suffered non-life threatening injuries. He was cited for following too closely and not having proof of insurance.
