A Pittsburgh man was listed in fair condition in a Pittsburgh hospital Monday following a collision between the motorcycle he was riding and a dirt bike Saturday afternoon.

State police said in a news release that James Nee, 63, was traveling east on Route 286 on his 2006 Honda 1300 at 2:50 p.m. when a 2009 Apollo 125 dirt bike driven by a 17-year-old Marion Center boy entered the road. Police said the teen had been traveling east on the berm of Route 286.

The bikes collided and flipped. Both drivers were wearing helmets.

The teen was taken by ambulance to Indiana Regional Medical Center for treatment. Police did not provide his name.

Nee was flown by a medical helicopter to UPMC Presbyterian.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
