WARRICK CO., Ind. (WFIE) - The Warrick County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an accident that happened on SR 61 at Roeder Road.

WCSO says that crash involved a truck and a motorcycle. The driver of the truck was identified as 62-year-old Ronald McDaniel. The driver of the motorcycle was identified as 45-year-old Douglas Pearson.

According to a press release, the accident happened when McDaniel pulled out in front of Pearson. Pearson was taken to the hospital by helicopter with serious injuries.

Officials say McDaniel tested .000 at the scene and alcohol was not a contributing factor to the crash.

WCSO says due to the Indiana Implied Consent Warning for a driver involved in a serious bodily injury crash, McDaniel was taken to the hospital for a chemical test.

The incident temporarily closed the part of SR 61 but authorities say it is now back open.

This is an ongoing investigation.
