A Grove man was injured around 12:38 p.m. Wednesday when his motorcycle collided with a pick-up on State Highway 10 near the Grove Municipal Airport, according to Grove Police Chief Mark Morris.

Jay J. Schraab, 29, of Grove was life flighted to a Joplin, MO hospital with head, internal and external trunk injuries, and arm and leg injuries, Morris said.

The accident happened when Schraab, who was riding a 2008 Harley motorcycle westbound, swerved left to pass traffic that had slowed down in front of him.

He passed one vehicle, and collided with a pick-up driven by Paul L. Villarreal, 24, of Grove as the westbound pick-up was turning left onto 640 Rd.

Villarreal was not injured in the wreck.
