A 44-year-old man is in critical condition after crashing his motorcycle in Mandarin on Sunday night, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

JSO Detective D.B. Edmonds said the motorcycle slid on it's side before coming to rest after the intersection.

Edmonds said alcohol could have been a factor in the crash and the investigation is continuing.
