Man Seriously Injured After Thrown From Motorcycle

Last updated on Monday, July 16, 2012

(MITCHELL) - A Brownsburg man was flown by helicopter for treatment after he was injured when thrown from his motorcycle on Ind. 60 East Sunday night.

According to a Mitchell Police report, 56-year-old Donald Mosson was traveling west on Ind. 60 when a 1999 Honda driven by Jedidiah Kellery, of Franklin, pulled into his path.

Mosson was flown by helicopter to IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Mosson suffered a brain bleed and two collapsed lungs and other injuries.

Police say Kelley was traveling east on Ind. 60 and attempted to pull into the parking lot of 60's East Gas Station to get a coffee and newspaper, when he pulled into the path of Mosson's 2009 Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The impact threw Mosson and his passenger Amy Guernsey, of Fisher, from the motorcycle and over the rear of the car.

Kelley at first told police the sun was in his eyes and he didn't see the motorcycle. Then he later told police he was looking too far down the roadway and that is why he didn't see the motorcycle.

Kelley was not injured in the crash. Guernsey suffered abrasions and bruises. She refused medical attention.

Kelley was cited for failure to yield the right of way.
