Cyclist injured in Interstate 65 crash

Indiana State Police are crediting a helmet and protective gear with protecting a motorcyclist from serious injuries in a crash on Interstate 65 Friday evening.

Trooper Stephen Wheeles, spokesman for the state police, says the crash happened at about 6 p.m. Friday at the Jonesville State Road 11 exit, about five miles north of Seymour. 65-year-old Linda Ramey of Mansfield Ohio, lost control on the ramp as she was trying to exit onto State Road 11. When she hit loose gravel her cycle skidded, throwing her off and crashing down an embankment.

Ramey suffered scrapes and bruises and possibly a broken arm, Wheeles said. She was transported to Schneck Medical Center for treatment.
