A motorcycle accident in Oak Ridge Tuesday night injured one man, according to a city release.
Shortly before 8:30 pm Tuesday, Oak Ridge Police and Fire units responded to a report of a motorcycle accident on East Tennessee Avenue at California Avenue. Witnesses told emergency workers that a man had been riding his motorcycle when he lost control and hit a car parked by the side of the road.
