BRUCEVILLE-EDDY (November 7, 2013) A man was taken early Thursday morning to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center after he lost control of his motorcycle on a rural roadway and crashed.

Department of Public Safety troopers were sent to the area at about 1:20 a.m. where they found the rider lying in a roadside ditch.
