An Indiana State Trooper was airlifted to Methodist Hospital Sunday evening after being involved in a crash on Interstate 70. F/Sgt. Jon Watson was eastbound on I-70 just west of State Road 39 near Monrovia.
He was approaching a construction zone in the left lane.
Traffic was supposed to merge left and that is when a black Chevrolet Suburban went from the right lane to left lane without signaling hitting Watson’s motorcycle.
Watson lost control of his motorcycle and rolled over several times as it went into the median.
Drugs and alcohol were not a factor in this crash.
The driver of the black Suburban was cited but a name has not been released.
F/Sgt Watson suffered multiple fractures to his leg and severe abrasions.
He is expected to make a full recovery.
