A local man was injured in a motorcycle crash over the weekend.

25-year-old Joshua Verdeyen of Effingham was riding on I-70, a mile east of Mulberry Grove at 1:50pm Sunday.  State police say Verdeyen was passing two vehicles when a gust of wind caused him to lose control of the cycle.  The unit ran off the roadway into the median, rolled over and struck an embankment.

Verdeyen was injured, but declined treatment at the scene.  He was cited for improper lane usage.
