Seymour man sustains injuries in motorcycle accident

A 45-year-old man was flown to a Louisville hospital Sunday afternoon after he was thrown from his motorcycle during a crash on Seymour’s far east side.

Jeremy L. Longbrake, 45, of Seymour sustained serious injuries when a 2019 Honda CR-V driven by a Hendricks County man pulled into the path of Longbrake’s 1994 Harley-Davidson, according to a news release from Sgt. Stephen Wheeles.

Wheeles, public information officer for the Indiana State Police Versailles Post, said Trooper Seth Davidson investigated the wreck that occurred as Longbrake was driving southbound on U.S. 31 just south of U.S. 50.

At that point, William W. Gordon, 83, of Avon pulled onto U.S. 31 and into the path of Longbrake’s motorcycle.¬†

Longbrake, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown onto the road after hitting the driver’s side of Gordon’s vehicle, Davidson reported.

He was treated by personnel with Jackson County Emergency Medical Services before being flown from the scene to University of Louisville Medical Center by a StatFlight medical helicopter. His condition was not available Monday morning.

Gordon was not injured in the crash reported at 4:46 p.m. Sunday, Davidson said.

While alcohol and drugs are not suspected to be factors in the crash, Gordon was transported to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour and submitted to a blood draw, Wheeles said.

The investigation is ongoing.

Davidson was assisted by state troopers Matt Holley and Austin Straub, officers with the Seymour Police Department and personnel with Seymour and Redding Township fire departments and Hampton Towing.
