A 20-year old man from Elizabeth is in the hospital with serious injuries after an accident involving a motorcycle.

West Virginia State Police Sergeant W.K. Marshall said a pickup truck pulled out of a driveway onto State Route 14 when a motorcycle traveling south, hit the truck and partially went under it.

Metz was reportedly wearing a helmet.
