A 23-year-old man is in critical condition at a Wichita hospital after crashing his motorcycle in Cowley County on Saturday afternoon.

Trenton D. Stone of Winfield was southbound on U.S. 77 near Winfield when he lost control of a 2006 Suzuki motorcycle and rolled several times, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol crash report.

He was initially transported with serious injuries to Arkansas City’s South Central Kansas Medical Center but was moved to Wichita after his condition deteriorated, according to the hospital.

Trenton was listed in critical condition Saturday evening at Wesley Medical Center, a hospital operator said. Authorities say he suffered a skull fracture.

The crash happened shortly after 1 p.m. one mile north of Winfield, according to the highway patrol.
