Two accidents over the weekend on this one curve involved motorcyclists, one of which has died.

Brown County officials say 33-year-old Travis Beckman of Indianapolis died Sunday afternoon on the curve about 2 miles north of Nashville. Saturday evening, 32-year-old Jay Haines and 33-year-old Lula Dawson, also of Indianapolis, were seriously injured when their bike crossed the centerline, ducked a couple oncoming vehicles and hit a guardrail.

Both were flown to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis in stable condition. Beckman's accident ended with him thrown into a ditch.

None of the bikers were wearing helmets.
