TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A man suffered minor injuries after he crashed his motorcycle on Catalina Highway Friday afternoon.

Pima County Sheriff's deputy Jesus Banuelos tells KGUN9 that a motorcyclist crashed his bike after while driving too fast around a turn.

The motorcyclist suffered non-life-threatening injuries, but paramedics air-lifted him to the hospital to get him to treatment as soon as possible.

The motorcyclist was conscious and alert when deputies arrived on scene, according to Banuelos.
