A dirt bike rider was flown to a nearby hospital following following a serious crash in Sussex County, authorities said.

The Sparta Township Fire Department responded to the crash in the woods behind Angelo Drive in Sparta shortly before 9:20 p.m. on Friday, June 3, the squad said.

Emergency crews worked to extricate the victim from the woods before the rider was treated at the scene.

Meanwhile, Atlantic Air 3 medical helicopter was requested to land near Mohawk Avenue to take the victim to a nearby hospital for further treatment, the fire department said.

Both the crash scene and the landing zone were cleared by 11:25 p.m., the department said.
