A one-vehicle crash in Jackson Co. Saturday morning injured an Independence resident.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports William Powers, 61, was riding a motorcycle on westbound I-70, just west of Oak Grove.

Construction ahead of Powers caused already congested traffic to come to a halt. Powers was unable to stop in time and maneuvered the bike onto the shoulder and then back onto the highway. The bike overturned and Powers was ejected.

He was transported to Truman Medical Center for treatment of moderate injuries.
