A young Hannibal man is recovering from minor injuries following a dirt bike crash Sunday evening.

The Missouri Highway Patrol says 22-year-old Jordan Pelaez was operating the motorcycle in a careless and imprudent manner when he lost control on Hydesburg Road three miles southwest of Hannibal at 8:20 Sunday evening.

Troopers say Pelaez was taken to Hannibal Regional Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
