A Paradise man was injured Tuesday morning after falling 15 feet into a dry creek bed when his motorcycle hit a guardrail on County Road 3470. Terry Himes, 57, lost control of his motorcycle after a bee flew up his shorts. He panicked and swerved into the guardrail, flipped forward off his bike and fell onto his back about 15 feet below the bridge. His injuries did not appear life-threatening, and he was wearing a helmet. Members of Paradise Volunteer Fire Department and Wise County Medics pulled Himes out of the creek after strapping him into a sled. Himes was transported by ground to Wise Regional Health System in Decatur.
