A 28 year old Sparta man was airlifted to Erlanger Hospital Thursday morning after he rear ended a pickup truck while riding a motorcycle on Highway 70 at Laurel Hill.

Central dispatch received the call at 8:30 a.m.

Trooper Jimmy Tisdale of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WJLE that John Bumbalough was on a 1998 Harley Davidson traveling east when he ran into the rear of a 1995 GMC Sonoma pickup driven by 40 year old Linda Gail Oliver, who had stopped for a flagger as a TDOT road crew was doing some work there. Oliver was not injured.

Bumbalough was wearing a helmet but may have suffered a broken leg. He was airlifted from near the scene by a Life Force helicopter ambulance.
