(BROWN COUNTY) - State Roads 135 South and 46 were closed for a bit Saturday after a serious, head-on accident involving a motorcycle.

The Brown County Democrat reports that Don Jones, of Martinsville, was traveling southbound on State Road 135 South in his motorcycle when he was struck by a vehicle.

Jones was taken to Methodist Hospital by helicopter. Another woman involved in the crash was taken to another hospital by ambulance.

Jones was riding a motorcycle with a sidecar southbound on State Road 135 South at the first curve, just past the humane society, when the bike was struck by a vehicle, said his grandson, Chris Forler of Indianapolis. Forler and a companion were riding a Harley in front of Jones, who had a female passenger in the sidecar.

Forler said he was rounding the curve when he saw two cars, a white four-door and a black car, try to pass him on double yellow in the curve. Forler says he knew the vehicles would hit his grandfather's motorcycle.

The helicopter landed in a grassy area next to the humane society.

Foler says he didn't know the name of the woman riding in the sidecar of his grandfather's motorcycle.

No word yet on the extent of the victims' injuries.

The road was reopened by 7:15 p.m. Saturday.
