By WKTV News

 UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A motorcyclist's leg is severed, following an accident on the 5-8-12 Arterial around 5p.m. near the 840 overpass, Friday night. 

 
The crash left the southbound lane of the Arterial closed for several hours, while police reconstructed the accident scene. 
 
The accident involved no other cars, only the motorcycle. 
 
LT. Steve Hauck of the Utica Police Department says the driver somehow lost control and skidded against the guardrail.
 
He was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center then air lifted directly to Syracuse.
 
The highway is back open tonight.
 
The man's name has not been released.
