TOWN OF ANTWERP, N.Y. (WWNY) - A helicopter was on the scene of a motorcycle crash in the Town of Antwerp.

Calls came in around 6 PM to a crash near 33388 County Rd 22, also known as Oxbow Road, near the intersection of Houghton Road.

Our on-scene reporter, John Pirsos, says there were two motorcycles heading the same direction.

Officials say one motorcyclist, who was in their early 20′s, lost control of the bike and went off the road. The driver sustained visible injuries and was airlifted to Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse.

We’re told the other motorcyclist was following the first bike and managed to pull over safely.

Officials say CPR was administered on scene.

The section of County Road 22 was closed, but has since reopened.

Officials say speed was a factor in the crash.
