Two Clay County residents were lifelined to Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis, late Friday evening following a single vehicle accident.
According to Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton, sometime between 10:30-11 p.m., Friday, officials were dispatched to a location off State Road 42 for a single motorcycle accident.
"The motorcycle was apparently heading east on SR 42 and for whatever reason, lost control and went off the roadway," Heaton said.
Heaton said another vehicle was traveling behind the motorcycle from a distance. Witnesses said it appeared the motorcycle was "swaying" back and forth on the roadway before going off the road.
Heaton said the motorcycle struck a reflective post sign, a speed limit and then hit a utility pole.
"When they got up to where (the motorcycle) was, they found it and it had already hit a utility pole," Heaton said.
The driver of the motorcycle, Gary Bunch, rural Clay County, and passenger, Debbie Bunch, were both thrown from the vehicle after hitting the utility pole, Heaton said.
Heaton added both were treated at the scene and then airlifted to Methodist.
The conditions of both were not known at press time.
Also assisting at the scene were the Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Department, The Center Point Volunteer Fire Department, Clay County Search and Rescue, TransCare, Lifeline and AirEvac.
