[ISP] One Airlifted Following Motorcycle Crash

Entry Description

Jackson County: This afternoon at approximately 12:35 a southbound motorcycle crashed on I-65 resulting in serious injury to the driver. According to Master Trooper Jason Duncan, a 2008 Yamaha Venture motorcycle driven by 67 year old Leon Moore of Fountain City, IN, was southbound on I-65 near the 55 mile marker when, according to witnesses, the driver swerved to avoid a dog crossing the interstate then lost control of the motorcycle ejecting the driver. Moore suffered serious facial and head injuries as a result. A witness to the crash, who was operating a tour bus when the crash occurred in front of him, pulled the bus to the center of the roadway bringing traffic to a stop which may have prevented Moore from being struck by other motorists. Additionally, a Harrison County EMS ambulance also traveling back to Harrison County following a training session in the Indianapolis area arrived on scene shortly after the crash and was treating Moore when Jackson County EMS arrived. Moore was airlifted from the scene to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Indianapolis and his condition at this time is unknown.

M/Tpr. Duncan commented, “Moore had a helmet on his motorcycle but was not wearing it at the time of the crash.” In addition to the Harrison and Jackson County EMS units, M/Tpr. Duncan was assisted at the scene by other troopers. I-65 was closed for approximately 1 ½ hours as troopers investigated the crash and cleared the scene. However, traffic did not get back to normal flow until after 3:00 p.m.
