An Indianapolis man was killed in a single-vehicle motorcycle crash just after 6 p.m. Sunday, June 16, 2019, according to a report from the Indiana State Police.
911 callers had reported a man seriously injured and unconscious on Interstate 465 northbound near Interstate 70.
When emergency responders arrived, they found the man to be unresponsive. The victim, under critical condition, was immediately taken to Eskenazi Hospital, where he would later be pronounced dead. The Indiana State Police were able to identify the victim as William Brown, 67, of Indianapolis.
State police trooper, Christopher Cannon, who was investigating the crash, believes that Brown’s motorcycle began to swerve back and forth until he lost control and laid the motorcycle on its side.
Brown was not wearing a helmet, state police said and that there were no other vehicles involved in the wreck. They also don’t suspect alcohol being a factor although a blood test, which is standard protocol for crashes, is not available.
