Motorcyclist seriously injured in Pendleton accident

An Anderson motorcyclist suffered serious injuries when he lost control of his Harley Davidson in Pendleton, located 30 miles northeast of Indianapolis, drove off the roadway, and struck a utility pole.

The 40 year-old man was traveling south on Indiana 9 last Thursday night when the accident occurred. He was life-flighted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis with blunt force trauma to his chest and head injuries.

According to the Herald Bulletin, a report of a motorcycle theft was received by the Madison County Sheriff’s Department just prior to the accident. The woman who called in theft said a man paid for a white Harley Davidson with counterfeit bills. Police are investigating if the two events are related.
