    A man is in the hospital in critical condition after a motorcycle crash in Manchester early Wednesday morning.

    Police said they were called to Highland Street around 1:40 a.m. after getting a report of a motorcycle in the middle of the road, in front of Highland Park Market.

    When officers arrived, they found a single motorcycle on the road, on the yellow lines.

    Officers said they walked around the area, trying to find the driver. After a few minutes, the driver, later identified as a man from Vernon, was found in a tree off of the road, near the guardrails.

    Paramedics transported the man to Hartford Hospital with severe, life-threatening injuries. He is currently in critical condition, officials said.
