SEYMOUR – A two-vehicle crash on US 31 near Seymour, Sunday sent a motorcyclist to a Louisville, Kentucky hospital with serious injuries.

According to an Indiana State Police report, a black 1994 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, driven by 45-year-old Jeremy L. Longbrake, of Seymour, was traveling south on US 31, just south of US 50.  A black 2019 Honda CR-V, driven by 83-yar-old William W. Gordon, of Avon, pulled onto US 31 into the path of Longbrake’s motorcycle.

Longbrake’s motorcycle struck the driver’s side of Gordon’s vehicle.  As a result of the collision, Longbrake was thrown from the motorcycle.  Longbrake, who was not wearing a helmet, sustained serious injuries in the crash.  He was flown from the scene to the University of Louisville Medical Center by Stat Flight medical helicopter.

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

The investigation is ongoing.

Trooper Seth Davidson was assisted at the scene by Troopers Matt Holley and Austin Straub, Indiana State Police-Versailles, Seymour Police Department, Jackson County EMS, Seymour Fire Department, Redding Township Fire Department, Stat Flight, and Hampton’s Wrecker Service.
