Jarrett Manning Injured in Motorcycle Accident (woman pictured not involved)

A 27 year old Smithville man suffered injuries Friday afternoon in a motorcycle accident on West Broad Street in front of DeKalb Community Bank.

Smithville Police Officer Matt Farmer said that Jarrett Manning was operating a 2006 Suzuki motorcycle traveling west on Broad Street as a Ford F350, driven by 56 year old Kirt Martin of Smithville, was pulling out onto the highway from the bank parking lot attempting to go east.

According to Officer Farmer, Manning claims he saw the truck pulling out and applied his brakes trying to avoid a collision. Manning came off the motorcycle and it slid into the front of the truck. Manning's body also struck a portion of the truck and he came to rest in the street. Manning was transported by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital. He reportedly suffered fractures in his pelvis in two places, his hip, and his leg in a couple of places.

Martin, the driver of the truck, was not injured.
