A motorcycle crash on the Ortega Highway Saturday shut down the road on both sides, Patch learned.
The crash, about two miles west of Grand Avenue at Mile Marker 9.5 was reported at 8:18 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
The rider of the Kawasaki JLR 650 -- a man -- was taken to Inland Valley Medical Center with moderate injuries, according to CHP Officer Oscar Valdez.
"The rider was eastbound on the Ortega and it went over the south edge, hits the curb, lost control and slid ... about 70 feet," Valdez told Patch.
Traffic was backed up on both sides for about a mile, Patch learned at the scene.
