Tahlequah Man Injured In Motorcycle Crash

Posted: Updated:

A Tahlequah man was taken by EagleMed to a Tulsa hospital Sunday afternoon after he crashed his motorcycle when he failed to negotiate a curve south of Tahlequah, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said. 

Troopers said Frankie Birdtail Jr., 34, was driving his 1999 Honda motorcycle about eight miles south of Tahlequah on Indian Road a little after 2 p.m. Sunday when he crashed. 

Birdtail was driving too fast on the curve and his motorcycle left the road on the left and struck a tree, troopers said.  

He suffered multiple injuries and his condition is stable, according to the OHP collision report.
