WASHINGTON COUNTY, Fla. (WTVY) - A Chipley man is listed as being in critical condition after a single vehicle crash involving a motorcycle in Washington County, Florida on Monday.

According to information released by Florida Highway Patrol, the accident occurred at around 4:20 p.m. near the intersection of State Road 77 and Carter Circle, which is roughly 11 miles south of Wausau.

The 42-year-old Chipley man was traveling southbound on the west shoulder of SR 77 before making a southwest turn into an active construction zone for road expansion.
