CHAUMONT — A motorcycle operator was hospitalized after a crash in a field in the town of Lyme.

Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies said Devin G. Smith, 23, of 27049 Route 3, Watertown, crashed his motorcycle after he failed to slow down for a turn at Boat Launch Road about 6:15 p.m. Friday. Deputies said he lost control of the motorcycle and it slid across the road before crashing into an earth embankment. The impact sent Mr. Smith and the bike airborne, and the motorcycle was found about 100 feet from the road.

He was taken to Samaritan Medical Center, Watertown, for treatment of unspecified injuries.

He also was charged with speeding and not staying in his lane.
