(PEKIN) - A Pekin man suffered serious injuries after his off-road motorcycle hit a tree Sunday.
Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating an off-road motorcycle accident that occurred in Washington County Saturday evening. At approximately 12:45 p.m., conservation officers were called to the accident scene on private property located off of Horner's Chapel Road near Pekin.
According to ICO Jim Schreck, 28-year-old Devan Porter, of Pekin, was thrown from his motorcycle as he was reportedly riding a wheelie before striking a tree. Porter suffered injuries, including a brain contusion and several broken bones, and was later transported to University of Louisville Hospital for treatment.
Schreck says that Porter was wearing a helmet, which likely reduced the severity of his injuries.
Indiana Conservation Officers strongly encourage riders to always wear a helmet and necessary safety equipment when operating an ATV or off-road motorcycle.
