Shortly before 11:30 a.m., Friday, 911 dispatchers received a report of someone lying facedown in a drainage ditch near Sink Cemetery. Members of the Clay County Sheriff's Department and Clay City and Lewis volunteer fire departments where dispatched to an area near the intersection of State Road 59 and County Road 1050 South.
Due to the nature of the accident, Air Evac was immediately notified.
Upon arrival, officials found an unidentified man, whose name is being withheld pending notification of family, in a ditch bleeding from apparent head injuries. Although the extent of the victim's injuries is unknown, officials confirmed the man was in critical condition when airlifted to Wishard Hospital, Indianapolis.
According to information provided by investigators at the scene, tire marks indicate the driver of a 2004 Victory motorcycle was traveling south on SR 59 through a series of curves when it left the roadway and may have possibly flipped end-over-end until it landed facing north in the ditch.
Further details are not available at this time due to the ongoing investigation.
