TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Deputies are investigating a motorcycle crash that occurred on General Hitchcock Highway, the road to Mt. Lemmon, Friday afternoon.

Deputy Tracy Suit with the Pima County Sheriff's Department tells us a 17-year-old boy crashed his motorcycle near milepost 14, near Windy Point.

Emergency medical crews transported the boy to the hospital and at the time, he was going in and out of conscientiousness, Suit said. However, Suit doesn't yet know the boy's medical status. 

Mt. Lemmon highway is currently closed in both directions north of Windy Point.

Deputies are still investigating the cause of the crash.
