The Amarillo police are investigating a Saturday night dirt bike accident that seriously injured the rider.

Around 9:25pm officers were called to the 200 block of Northeast 15th. On arrival they found 29-year-old Jorge Ernesto Villalon injured from crashing his dirt bike.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash.  The Amarillo police department investigation is ongoing.
