WEST VALLEY CITY -- Officials say a Utah motorcyclist has been hospitalized after being thrown into the back of a moving pickup truck when his motorcycle crashed.
The Utah Highway Patrol says 37-year-old Arnold Warner crashed around 1 a.m. Sunday near State Route 201 and Bangerter Highway in West Valley City.
Troopers say witnesses reported Warner was riding recklessly when he struck the rear of a pickup truck, launching him off his bike and into the bed of the truck.
The truck's driver noticed Warner a short time later. Warner, who was wearing a helmet, had head injuries, both arms broken and was vomiting.
He was transported to a hospital and later arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and driving a stolen motorcycle.
