Entry Description

Putnam County—This afternoon at 12:13, Indiana State Police and Putnam County emergency agencies responded to a report of car-motorcycle crash on US 40 at State Road 240.

Preliminary investigation revealed a gray 2009 Nissan Altima driven by Shari Stevens, age 42, of Coatsville, IN. was traveling east on SR 240. As Stevens attempted to proceed onto US 40, she drove into the path of a westbound black 2004 Harley Davidson motorcycle driven by 54-year-old Jeffrey L. Christian of Indianapolis, IN. To avoid colliding with the passenger car, Christian steered his cycle into the median where he lost control and laid it down.

Jeffrey Christian suffered abrasions, but refused medical treatment at the scene. His passenger (wife) was not injured.

Shari Stevens was cited for Failure to Yield the Right of Way.

The crash was investigated by ISP Senior Trooper DuJuan Presley-McFadden. Assisting was Putnam County EMS.

The Indiana State Police reminds everyone that motorcycles are increasing on Indiana roadways. Drivers should be patient, vigilant, use extra caution, and look twice before entering a roadway, to prevent colliding with motorcyclists. Working together, we can all have a safe summer travel season.
