A Russell Springs teenager was injured Saturday afternoon when his motorcycle collided with a van on Bernard Ridge Road.
Deputy Sheriff Nick Bertram told WJRS NEWS that 15 year old Jared Stephens was attempting to turn into a driveway from Ky. 619 when he pulled his Yamaha dirt-bike into the path of a 2008 Nissan van being driven by Tracy Aaron, 43, also of Russell Springs, resulting in the collision.
Stephens was taken by family to the Russell County Hospital for treatment of his injuries, none of which are life-threatening according to Deputy Bertram. Neither Aaron nor three children which were passengers in the van were injured.
That wreck occurred around 4:15 p.m. Saturday, just east of Stephens Pipe and Steel.
