SPOKANE, Wash.-- One person suffered injuries when he lost control on his motorcycle and struck a median.

It happened around 10:00 p.m. Friday on I-90 in Spokane.

Tyrel Morgan, 30, was getting on the highway from 2nd Avenue when he lost control on the Altamont onramp. The motorcycle fell over and landed in one of the lanes. Other drivers manage to avoid hitting Morgan and the bike.

Morgan was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital for minor injuries.

The Washington State Patrol says alcohol is a factor in the wreck.

Traffic was backed up for about a half-mile as crews cleared the scene.
