 A Cecilia man escaped serious injury March 11 when he lost control of the motorcycle he was driving.

Mark L. Post, 64, was driving a 2011 Harley-Davidson FLH Series motorcycle south on Ky. 224 outside Upton about 11 a.m., according to LaRue County Deputy Robby Brownfield.

Post “entered the right hand curve at a higher rate of speed than the curve was rated for,” and laid it down, said Brownfield. The motorcycle came to rest in the ditch line on the left side of the roadway. It was extensively damaged; Post towed it home.
