The name was released Sunday of a motorcycle rider who was transported to a Metroplex hospital Saturday. Daniel Masten, 65, of Alvord was seriously injured when he crashed his motorcycle on the U.S. 287 service road in front of Decatur Arby’s about 5:45 p.m. Saturday. Officer Keith Hilton with the Decatur Police Department said there were no witnesses to the accident, but it appeared that the man hit the curb and fell over. When emergency responders arrived on scene, the motorcycle was in the service road, laying against the curb, and the rider was laying in the grass. He was not wearing a helmet. The rider was transported to Wise Regional Health System in Decatur and then flown to a Metroplex hospital. His condition was not available Sunday afternoon.
