State Troopers say a Bristolville motorcyclist was seriously injured late Wednesday after a pickup truck pulled in front of him in Mecca Township.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, 53-year-old Frank Bright was thrown from his Harley Davidson after it ran into a Dodge Dakota pickup that pulled in front of him on State Route 46 near Griffith Drive.

Bright was taken to Mercy Hospital in Youngstown for treatment of injuries troopers describe as serious.

Monteneri was not injured.
