JONES COUNTY -

A motorcyclist was airlifted to a hospital after crashing head-on into a truck near the Jones-Craven County line Monday, investigators said.

The wreck happened on Island Creek Road at County Line Road, east of Pollocksville in Jones County Monday afternoon.

A motorcyclist was heading west on Island Creek Road when he lost control at a curve, traveled left of center, and hit a pickup truck at the intersection of County Line Road, the Highway Patrol said.

The motorcyclist, described as a 24-year-old male, was airlifted to Vidant Medical Center in stable condition, said troopers. His identity has not been released.

Island Creek Road was shut down because of the wreck, but has since reopened. NewsChannel 12 is working to get more details.
