Motorcycle crashes on Green River near I-164

Two people were hurt in a motorcycle crash Saturday afternoon in Evansville.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the 2500 block of S. Green River Rd near I-164 in reference to a single vehicle crash involving a motorcycle.

Authorities say 53-year-old Leslie Clayton was driving the black Harley-Davidson north bound on S. Green River Rd when traffic began to slow.

Clayton attempted to break, but the motorcycle's rear tire began to skid.

The motorcycle then struck the curb on the east side of the roadway, causing it to slide on to it's side.

At some point both Clayton, and the passenger, 47-year-old Connie Scroggins, were ejected from the motorcycle.

Both Clayton and Scroggins were conscious but sustained possible serious injuries. They were transported to St. Mary's Hospital.

They were not wearing a helmet.
