A Springfield motorcyclist was killed this Wednesday after being hit in a head on crash on State Road 45 near Darrell Drive, just outside of Bloomington. Mark Conely, 56, was driving his 1997 Honda motorcycle north when Sandra Lee Sawyer-Hughey, a 54-year-old Washington native drifted left of the center line and crashed into him with her 2010 Mazda, throwing him from his motorcycle.
The Monroe County Coroner’s office declared him dead on scene. Mr. Conley had been wearing a helmet when the crash occurred. Ms. Sawyer-Hughey was taken to IU Health Hospital with complaints of chest pain.
Indiana State Police are still investigating the incident.
Indiana law states that motorcycle helmets are only required for riders under the age of 17.
Seeing a copy of the Indiana accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Indiana Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Indiana accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
