Two Sent to Indy Hospital Following Crash

Two people suffered head injuries after a van crashed into the motorcycle they were riding Wednesday near County Road 500N and State Road 9 in Bartholomew County.

The Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Office told our news gathering partners at “The Republic” that around 4:30 p.m., one van was going north on State Road 9 and the other was southbound on the same road. The motorcyclists were trailing the southbound van, which turned left onto County Road 500N and in front of the other van. The northbound van swerved into the left lane to avoid the southbound van, and struck the two motorcyclists. They say neither motorcyclist was wearing a helmet.

Both were airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital for treatment.

Both lanes of State Road 9 between County Roads 450N and 600N are closed while emergency responders attend to the situation and clear debris from the road.
