Bad brakes on a motorcycle Sunday afternoon in Clay Co. sent a Bellevue man to the hospital.
A DPS Trooper told Newschannel 6 that 35 year old Phillip Weathers was going west on Farm to Market Rd. 1288 when his brakes failed as he rounded a curve. Weathers and his motorcycle slid 75 ft. into a bar ditch. He then hit a power pole and his bike hit the fence behind the pole.
He was not wearing a helmet.
Bellevue Fire and Rescue, DPS and Air Evac worked to get Weathers to a Fort Worth Hospital.
