A 43-year-old Sardinia motorcyclist who was injured in a three-vehicle crash at about 5 p.m. Friday on Genesee Road in Sardinia faces charges of driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed driving.

Thomas J. Jett was flown to Erie County Medical Center by Mercy Flight for treatment of what Erie County sheriff’s deputies described as multiple injuries.

Deputies said Jett was westbound on Genesee Road when he struck the back of a pickup truck operated by Junior Meyers, 86, of Sardinia. Jett’s motorcycle then veered into the eastbound lane and struck a pickup truck driven by Christopher Roche, 49, of Holland. Jett was then ejected from his motorcycle, landing on the road.

The sheriff’s office said Jett’s driver’s license has been revoked for over 18 years because of a 1995 DWI conviction in the Town of Concord. His driver’s license also has been suspended four times for other offenses.
