The accident happened Tuesday just before 3:30 p.m.
(Franklin Co., Ind.) – A Brookville Man was injured in a two-vehicle accident yesterday afternoon.
Around 3:23 p.m., Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to Fairfield Causeway Road, about half a mile west of Cave Road, for a report of a motor vehicle accident with injuries.
Upon arrival, deputies found that Ethan D. Orschell, 27, of Brookville, was operating a 2014 Harley Davidson motorcycle eastbound on Fairfield Causeway Road. The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office reports that Orschell passed two eastbound vehicles, striking the second vehicle’s driver’s side mirror. The 27-year-old then lost control of the motorcycle, traveling off of the north side of the roadway into a ditch. The motorcycle rolled several times, ejecting Orschell from the vehicle.
Orschell was flown from the scene by U.C. Air Care for treatment of injuries. It was reported that Orschell was not wearing a helmet during the accident.
Deputies were assisted by Blooming Grove and Brookville Volunteer Fire Departments, Brookville E.M.S. #2, and Responder 24.
