Police in Red Oak say a motorcycle accident Wednesday evening resulted in one person being flown to an Omaha hospital for treatment of serious, unknown injuries. 38-year old David Aaron Fillmore, of Red Oak, was traveling east on Highway 34 just before 8-p.m., when he lost control of the 2011 Ducati motorcycle he was riding, as the bike was maneuvering a curve and merging onto Highway 48 southbound.

The Ducati hit an area of sand/gravel before sliding partially out of control and hitting a curb of the median. Fillmore then lost complete control of the cycle, which toppled onto  its right side. He was transported by Red Oak Rescue to the Montgomery County Hospital before being flown by Mercy One helicopter to a medical facility in Omaha.

The motorcycle sustained $500 damage during the crash. Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies and Red and Fire and Rescue assisted Red Oak P-D at the scene.
