Motorcyclist injured in crash near Jackson

An Indiana man escaped serious injuries when his motorcycle crashed on State Route 32 west of Jackson at 2 p.m. Monday afternoon, July 10.

The Jackson Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol reports the one-vehicle wreck occurred on State Route 32 near the Five Points Road intersection and involved a 2007 model Suzuki motorcycle operated by William Leslie, 68, of St. John, Indiana. The Patrol report stated Leslie's motorcycle went off the left side of the westbound lanes, through the grass median and onto the eastbound lanes. The bike then fell over and came to rest on the roadway.

Leslie was taken by Jackson County EMS to Holzer Medical Center-Jackson where he was then flown to St Mary's Regional Medical Center in Huntington, West Virginia.

Based on conversation with Leslie, the Patrol concluded that driver fatigue is suspected as a contributing factor in the crash. He was wearing a helmet and a heavy leather riding jacket which greatly minimized his injuries. His injuries appeared non-life threatening at the scene. State Route 32 eastbound was closed for about 20 minutes. The Scioto Township Fire Department and Jackson County Sheriff's Office were also on scene for assistance. The crash remains under investigation.
