State Sen. Mike Regan has been hospitalized after being injured in a motorcycle crash on Sunday morning, according to his chief of staff.

The Carroll Township Republican is being treated at Penn State Hershey Medical Center after suffering "some significant orthopedic injuries to his lower extremities," said chief of staff Bruce McLanahan.

He declined to comment further at this time because of the family's requests for privacy, he said. 

Northern York County Regional Police Chief Dave Lash said his officers were called to the scene of the Franklin Township crash at 9:38 a.m. Sunday.

Regan was southbound on South Mountain Road when his motorcycle failed to negotiate a curve near the Hickory Road intersection.

The motorcycle went into the northbound lane and struck a small van, the chief said.

No one in the van was hurt, and the crash remains under investigation.

Regan, 59, represents the state's 31st Senate District. The district includes parts of Cumberland and northern York counties.
