TREMONTON, Utah – A man was taken to a hospital with serious injuries after a motorcycle wreck on I-84 near Tremonton Tuesday.

According to information from the Utah Highway Patrol, 66-year-old Timothy Williams of Gearhart, Oregon drifted to the left and onto the shoulder of the ramp, and when he tried to correct the bike he lost control and tipped.
