A motorcyclist was seriously injured late Saturday night in a wreck on southbound I-75 in Wood County.

According to highway patrol troopers, 19-year-old Kyle Dimick, of Toledo, was traveling at a high rate of speed in Middleton Township around 10:40 p.m.

Dimick was thrown from the motorcycle and landed in the median. He was taken to a local hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
