      According to the Oneida County Sheriff??s Department, a motorcyclist was injured in a hit and run shortly before 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

      The accident happened on State Route 46 in the Town of Western.

      According to the Sheriff??s Office, 21-year-old Derek Keuhnhold, of Westernville, was driving his Harley Davidson south on Route 46 when a car traveling north entered Keuhnhold??s lane.
