Entry Description

Indianapolis, IN – Indiana State Police Trooper Jarrin Franklin was called to the scene of a single vehicle motorcycle crash that occurred just before midnight on Sunday, August 4, 2013. The crash occurred on the eastbound side of I-74 in the area of the 96 mile marker. The eastbound traffic lanes were closed from the time of the crash until the conclusion of the on-scene investigation shortly after 3:30 a.m. on Monday, August 5, 2013.

Preliminary investigation, and information from witnesses, indicates two motorcyclists were traveling at a high rate of speed when one of the motorcyclists lost control and crashed. The male driver of the bike and his female passenger separated from the crashed motorcycle and were run over by several other motorists. The other motorists that struck the motorcycle driver and passenger stopped at the scene and spoke with investigators.

The motorcycle driver and passenger were not wearing helmets and alcohol consumption, along with excessive speed, are believed to be contributing factors to the crash.

The driver of the motorcycle was identified as Devon P. Criswell, 41 of Indianapolis. The female passenger was identified as Jacquelynn M. Lewis, 23 also from Indianapolis. Immediate family for both of the deceased has been notified.

While neither motorcyclist struck each other or any other vehicle, the driver of the second motorcycle did not stop at the scene and is believed to have exited I-74 at the Post Road exit. Indiana State Police crash investigators would like to speak with the driver of the second motorcycle. Anyone who may have information about the second cyclist may call the Indianapolis State Police Post at 317-899-8577. Anonymous calls with information may be made to Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477
