DEKALB COUNTY, IN – Authorities are investigating a crash that sent a motorcyclist to the hospital over the weekend.
The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department says a motorcyclist was traveling eastbound in the 1500 block of County Road 56. It happened around 9:45 p.m. Saturday night.
Investigators say the driver attempted to slow down, but marks on the roadway suggest the brakes locked. As a result, the motorcycle turned and skid backwards hitting the side of the road.
The impact threw 35-year-old Eric Huff from the motorcycle. He was transported to a hospital with severe bleeding from a head injury.
Huff was reportedly not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Authorities do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash; however the incident remains under investigation.
