A 64-year-old man is in the hospital after an auto-cycle crash on White Oak Road in Boones Mill.

The man is facing non-life threatening injuries, according to Virginia State Police.

He has been charged with reckless driving.

Virginia State Police has not released his identity at this time.


According to the Boones Mill Volunteer Fire/EMS Facebook page, an "auto-cycle" collided with a tree this morning around 4:54 on White Oak Road. No driver was present when emergency personnel arrived at the scene, and a subsequent search through the heavily wooded area resulted in no individual being located. A thermal camera was also used.

Virginia State Police are still investigating. An "auto-cycle" has the option for a passenger and is built with a motorcycle tire in the back. It steers like a standard vehicle in the front.
