Entry Description

Franklin County: Yesterday evening a Connersville man was killed when he attempted to pass a vehicle in a no passing zone on S.R. 1 north of Brookville. According to Trooper Matt Holley, last night at approximately 7:45 p.m. a 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle driven by 38 year old Benjamin A. Hanson of Connersville was northbound on S.R. 1 approximately 1 ¼ miles north of Brookville when he attempted to pass a vehicle on a double yellow line. A southbound 1997 Ford van driven by 50 year old Scott M. Sams of Laurel approached and Hanson attempted to swerve back into the northbound lane when he lost control of the motorcycle. The van struck the motorcycle and then swerved into the northbound lane forcing a third vehicle, a 2004 Ford pickup truck driven by 54 year old Susan A. Albright of Connersville, into the guardrail. Hanson was pronounced dead at the scene. Sams and Albright were not injured.

Assisting Tpr. Holley at the scene was Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, Brookville Fire Department, and the Franklin County Coroner’s Office.
