Richard Roles, 49, was taken by helicopter to Freeman Hospital West in Joplin.

Authorities said the westbound motorcycle went beyond “road closed” signs and through barricades in a construction zone, and struck a parked vehicle.

• A Frontenac, Kan., teenager was injured in a one-vehicle accident at 12:59 p.m. Saturday on U.S. Highway 69, near the intersection of 600 Avenue in Crawford County, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

Jessica Pingree, 16, driver of the vehicle, was taken to Via Christi Hospital in Pittsburg, Kan.

The vehicle ran off the road and rolled several times before coming to rest on its side.
