FRANKLIN COUNTY, MO – A man from St. Clair was severely injured after his motorcycle crashed into a sign on Highway FF in Franklin County this afternoon, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
The collision occurred on northbound Highway FF, north of Tranquility Lane, at 12:03 p.m., as the driver of a 2006 Harley-Davidson Street Glide motorcycle was reportedly traveling too fast for the curved road.
The motorcyclist, 63-year-old St. Clair man Jonathan T. Hirons, was unable to make a right turn on the highway, and his motorcycle fell onto its right side and skidded across the roadway. The motorcycle then struck a Chevron side on the left side of the highway, then crashed into a tree.
Hirons was taken to Mercy Creve Coeur with severe injuries.
No other vehicles were involved in the collision.
