A Ponca City resident was injured in a motorcycle accident on July 4, according to a delayed report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The Highway Patrol reported Rhea was northbound on L.A. Cann, preparing to negotiate a left curve. His motorcycle departed the  roadway to the right and struck a tree line, then overturned on its side.
