A motorcyclist escaped serious injury Tuesday in a solo crash on Interstate 10 near Banning.

The crash was reported about 11 a.m. in the eastbound direction, east of Malki Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The motorcyclist, whose name was not immediately released, was transported to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs for treatment of knee lacerations that the CHP described as minor.

The motorcycle went down in the slow lane, snarling traffic for several hours while crews cleared the wreckage.
