Sheriff’s Office: alcohol suspected factor in motorcycle crash

VANDERBURGH, Ind. (WFIE) - Baseline Road was closed as deputies and emergency crews worked a motorcycle wreck around 4 p.m. Friday

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office says the wreck happened around the area of Owensville Road, north of Nisbet Road.

Our photographer on scene was told the driver, who was not wearing a helmet, was knocked unconscious. The Sheriff’s Office says Lifeflight was called, but was canceled because there was a Scott Township ambulance close enough that they went ahead and took him to Deaconess Midtown themselves.

According to the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office, alcohol is believed to be a factor in this crash.

The motorcyclist was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, the Sheriff’s Office says.

This crash is still under investigation.
