BRANSON, Mo. – A young man from Branson receives life-threatening injuries in a two vehicle crash Wednesday night, five miles north of Branson in Taney County.

State Troopers say 21-year-old Daniel Betzer was traveling eastbound on Victor Church Road at 9:55 p.m., when he lost control of the motorcycle he was operating on a curve and laid it onto its side. The motorcycle then crossed over the center line and entered into the path and struck a westbound vehicle being driven by 54-year-old Ricky Tedder of Branson.

According to the online crash report, Betzer was traveling too fast for road conditions. He was transported by Taney County Ambulance to Cox South Hospital in Springfield to be treated for his serious injuries.
