Entry Description

Jackson County: This morning just before 9:00 a.m. a Columbus man was killed when his motorcycle struck a semi on I-65 at the S.R. 11 interchange. According to Trooper Korry Clark, at approximately 8:43 a.m. a 1994 Yamaha motorcycle driven by 49 year old Kevin Burton of Columbus, IN was entering I-65 northbound from S.R. 11. As he came down the ramp a northbound 2005 International semi tractor pulling a flatbed trailer loaded with wood trusses driven by 60 year old Terry Brishaber of Henryville, IN was in the right lane of I-65 as the motorcycle merged onto the interstate it struck the drive axles of the semi ejecting Burton. He was pronounced dead at the scene and Brishaber was uninjured.

Both lanes of northbound I-65 were closed for about 90 minutes as troopers investigated the crash. The crash remains under investigation. Tpr. Clark was assisted at the scene by other troopers, ISP Motor Carrier Inspectors, Seymour Police Department, Jackson County EMS, and the Jackson County Coroner’s Office.

Motorists are reminded May is motorcycle safety awareness month and should be alert as more motorcycles are on the highways during the warmer months. Motorcyclists are reminded to be cognizant of other motorists and should wear appropriate protective clothing as they ride to include helmets.
