By Katherine Wartell

A 19-year-old was taken to the hospital after he lost control of his moped in the 900 block of Laramie Street Wednesday evening and hit a parked car.

Lt. Josh Kyle said Taylor Schoenhofer, Manhattan, was riding his 1988 Riva scooter down Laramie when he lost control and hit a parked black 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser.

Riley County EMS transported Schoenhofer to Mercy Regional Health Center for possible back and neck injuries.

He was cited for no proof of liability insurance.
