An Emporia man was hurt in Sunday evening's crash outside Riverside Elementary.

Emporia Police officers say 43-year-old Angel Ultreras was driving a motorcycle northbound in the 300 block of South West when he hit a curb and flipped shortly before 7:30 pm. Ultreras was thrown off the bike and hit his head. The bike continued another 115 feet before it fell over.

According to the police report, Ultreras told investigators a southbound car came up against him before the crash, although several witnesses on site did not mention another vehicle possibly involved.

Ultreras was taken to Newman Regional Health afterward. Authorities say alcohol may have been a factor in the crash based on initial indications at the scene. The investigation continues at this time.
