The driver of a motorcycle was taken to hospital Sunday afternoon following a single-vehicle crash in Paradise.
At about 3:45 p.m. emergency crews responded to Topsail Road, in the area of the T.C.H. overpass. Witness reports from the scene indicate the driver of a motorcycle attempted to stop for a red light, but lost control. The motorcycle tipped, sending the rider to the ground.

Westbound traffic on the busy road was slowed as crews worked.
