A 46-year-old Stock Island man was airlifted from U.S. 1 at Mile Marker 33 to Kendall Regional Trauma Center after he laid down his motorcycle around 5 p.m. Sunday, authorities said.

William Charles Ungerer Jr. was riding a 2014 Yamaha motorcycle when, for reasons unknown, he crashed in the southbound lane of U.S. 1, the Florida Highway Patrol said in a report.

Troopers had to block the roadway for two hours. Traffic alternated in one lane for three hours for the remainder of the investigation.
