A 51-year-old Arnold man faces charges of driving under the influence after a motorcycle accident near Murphys.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Tyrus Kasravi was riding a 1999 Buell east on Highway 4 near Utica Powerhouse Road at 8:50 p.m. Saturday.

Because Kasravi was speeding, he missed a turn and the motorcycle went into the westbound lane and off the road, the CHP said.

The bike hit a rock embankment, throwing Kasravi.

He was wearing a motorcycle helmet and suffered moderate injuries. He was taken to Doctors Medical Center in Modesto, where he was arrested on DUI charges.
