A Roxana man suffered only minor injuries when his motorcycle was struck by a mini van on Central Avenue in Roxana on Monday afternoon. Paramedics treated 30-year old, Mark Leady at the scene for "road rash" and other minor injuries.

Authorities say that Leady was attempting to turn left into a parking lot in the 690 block of South Central Avenue when he was hit by a minivan driven by 27-year old Ashley Hewitt of Roxana. Hewitt was uninjured in the accident. The crash remains under investigation by the Roxana Police Department. No citations were issued Monday, however police say it is likely that Hewitt will be ticketed for "failure to yield" to prevent a traffic crash.
