Crashed cyclist may have been going 100 MPH

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Police say a motorcycle rider was seriously hurt after crashing Tuesday night.

It happened around 10:30 on I-164 near the Green River Road exit.

Evansville Police say a trooper from Indiana State Police clocked a motorcycle traveling 100 miles per hour.  The trooper turned on his emergency lights while parked in the median in an effort to get the rider to slow down, but decided he couldn't safely pursue the cycle.

Moments later, another driver called to report motorcycle parts in the roadway.  EPD officers responded and found the crash site, just west of the 1.8 mile marker on the north side of I-164.

Police say 30-year-old Jason Wayne Carver's motorcycle appeared to have become airborne after leaving the roadway. 

Officers at the scene say he suffered head trauma and was rushed to St. Mary's.  14 News spoke with a family member Wednesday morning who indicated Carver had suffered bleeding on the brain, a fractured neck and spine and a collapsed lung.
