[ISP] Indiana State Trooper Airlifted from Interstate Crash

Entry Description

Morgan County – An Indiana State Trooper was airlifted to Methodist Hospital earlier this evening after being involved in a personal injury crash on Interstate 70.

F/Sgt. Jon Watson was travelling on I70, eastbound just west of State Road 39 near Monrovia. Approximately one mile from the start of a construction zone, signage indicated the left hand lane was going to close.

Preliminary investigation revealed that for unknown reasons, a black Chevrolet Suburban went from the right lane to left lane without signaling. While doing so, the Suburban collided with F/Sgt Watson causing the loss of control of his motorcycle. F/Sgt Watson’s motorcycle subsequently rolled over several times as it went into the median.

Impairment was not found to be a factor in this crash.

The driver of the black Suburban was cited. His name and information were not readily available at the time of this release.  Updates will be released as information becomes available.

F/Sgt Watson suffered multiple fractures to his leg and severe abrasions. He is expected to make a full recovery.
