A Pratt man received scrapes and bruises following a one-vehicle motorcycle accident Monday afternoon on west First Street.
Allan Briney, 29 of Pratt, was westbound on west First Street on the inside lane when he saw a pickup stopped in front of him waiting to make a left turn and go south on Mound Street, said Pratt Police Officer Nate Humble.
Briney realized he couldn't stop in time and to avoid hitting the pickup laid the motorcycle down and slid about 20 feet.
Briney suffered minor scrapes and bruises. Pratt County EMS treated him on site and he refused transport. The motorcycle suffered minor damage.
The stopped pickup was not hit during the accident.
