GALAX, Va. (WFXR) — The Galax Fire Department responded to reports of a motorcycle crash into a tree earlier this week on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

A Facebook post from the Galax Fire Department on Tuesday, July 5 says that first responders were called to the crash, located at the 21000 block of the Blue Ridge Parkway, just after 2 p.m.

Upon arrival, crews found a motorcyclist who had been thrown several feet after hitting a fallen tree in the road. The operator — who was with a group — was one of two motorcyclists who crashed into the tree, according to officials.

Firefighters worked to cut the tree, making way for EMS.

The motorcyclist was then brought to Twin County Regional Healthcare by Pipers Gap Rescue Squad Inc. to be treated for his injuries, the fire department says. There is no word on his condition at this time.

Officials say Twin County E-911 and the Blue Ridge Parkway Rangers assisted with the response, allowing all units to clear in 30 minutes.
