Once on scene, first responders located a male lying in the front yard of a residence located on the east side of the roadway. The motorcyclist was unresponsive, with no pulse. The first deputy to arrive began performing CPR with the assistance of a passerby who was a nurse. A Vectren employee (who had an automated external defibrillator (AED) also stopped and provided assistance. Despite the life saving efforts of all involved, the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to witness statements the motorcycle was being driven recklessly and at a high rate of speed while northbound on North Green River Road. The motorcyclist lost control, resulting in the motorcycle leaving the roadway and striking a utility pole. The collision ejected the rider, who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
There were no other vehicles involved in the crash. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to have been factors in the crash, but toxicology results are still pending at this time.
