The Indiana State Police responded to and investigated a single vehicle crash involving a motorcycle late Monday night on SR 205 in Whitley County. The crash injured two people.
According to Senior Trooper Joel Lemmon, at approximately 10 p.m., a 1986 Honda F70 motorcycle was being operated northbound on SR 205, just north of CR 300 North. For an unknown reason, the motorcycle left the right side of the roadway and crashed into a ditch. As a result, both the operator and his passenger were thrown from the motorcycle.
The operator, a 55-year-old man from Kendallville, was wearing a helmet and suffered injuries to his left foot. The passenger, a 41-year-old Wolcottville woman, was not wearing a helmet. She suffered a non-life threatening head injury and road rash to her hands and legs. Both were taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center by Parkview Whitley EMS.
Alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
