A 21-year-old Bayou Vista man suffered a broken arm, leg and pelvis after his motorcycle ran into a fence Sunday evening on Old Spanish Trail, Berwick Police Chief James Richard said.
Police received a call at 6:10 p.m. Sunday and responded to a single-vehicle motorcycle crash in the 1300 block of Old Spanish Trail, Richard said.
The motorcycle was driven by Blake Dinger, 21, of Bayou Vista. The motorcycle was reported traveling at a high-rate of speed passing another vehicle when the driver lost control, left the roadway and struck a fence, Richard said.

Dinger was listed in stable condition after the crash, Richard said. Citations are pending after Dinger is released from the hospital, the chief said.
