A motorcyclist is in critical condition after his leg was severed in an accident early Friday morning in Ocean Springs.

Police say the crash happened around 5:45 a.m. in front of Grace Independent Church on Hwy. 90.

The motorcyclist was taken to Ocean Springs Hospital initially but was later helicoptered to USA Medical Center in Mobile. Police say his leg was severed from his body when they arrived at the accident.

The crash is still under investigation.
