November 7, 2020 — Saturday night saw a tragic I-465 accident between a motorcycle and a pick-up truck claim the life of a motorcyclist.
At approximately 8:35 p.m., the motorcycle and pick-up truck made contact with one another in I-465’s westbound lane, just west of I-65.
There are currently few details as to how the accident happened, however, Indiana State Police, observed a trail of pick-up truck and motorcycle debris stretching a significant distance from the point where contact was initially made.
Additionally, when authorities arrived at the scene, they found witnesses attempting to aid the motorcyclist with CPR. Unfortunately, the man was later pronounced deceased by emergency service workers.
The driver of the pick-up truck was reported to have sustained minor injuries from the accident and taken to the hospital by ambulance.
And while we do not have enough details to speculate on a cause, it may be worth noting that unseasonably warm weather has seen motorcyclists on Indiana’s highways and interstates at a time when they normally might not be, and this can sometimes be a surprise to drivers of automobiles.
It is important that Hoosier drivers continue to be on the watch for bikers throughout the entire year, as the weather continues to bring mild temperatures to Indiana.
Also, we strongly recommend that all Indiana drivers exercise caution during this time of year, as daylight hours have significantly decreased, leaving motorcyclists, pedestrians, and other motorists more vulnerable to conditions that do not favor clear visibility.
