Camp Lejeune Marine Crashes Motorcycle, Airlifted To The Hospital

A Camp Lejeune Marine had to be airlifted to Pitt County Memorial Hospital Early Sunday Morning after his motorcycle crashed.

Jacksonville Police say 21 year old Kevin James Kerkhof was traveling on the U-S 17 By-Pass, when he veered off the left side of the road.

We're told Kerkhof traveled 200 feet before flipping off the bike. A tow truck driver saw the wreckage and called for help.

There's no word on Kerkhof's condition. Although police say speed and possibly alcohol could be a factor in the crash.
