Motorcycle crash injures two on Jonesville Road

Two people were injured in a motorcycle crash last night near Waynesville.

Judy Jackson, spokeswoman for the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department, says that deputies responded to the crash in the 9600 block of South Jonesville road at 8:27 p.m. A man and woman had been riding a motorcycle and it appears they ran off the east side of the road before losing control and crashing.

The driver, 57-year-old Clarence M. Graham of Columbus was flown by Lifeline helicopter to IU Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. The passenger, 57-year-old Teresa Lowery, was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital. Both were alert before being taken to the hospital.

Jackson said a container was found amidst the wreckage that appeared to contain marjiuana. She said the crash is still under investigation.
