A male motorcyclist was airlifted from Castaic Monday after sustaining injuries from a crash that occurred in Gorman, according to the California Highway Patrol.

At 6:23 p.m., CHP was called to the southbound 5 just south of CHP Road when a reporting party said that his son needed assistance after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle accident in Gorman, according to CHP.

Officers called the Los Angeles County Fire Department to the scene to treat and transport the injured motorcyclist for a possible broken leg.
