LIGONIER, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- The Indiana State Police responded to and investigated a crash Wednesday morning on US 33 in front of West Noble High School that involved an SUV and a motorcycle, sending the motorcyclist to the hospital.

According to Senior Trooper Marc Leatherman, at approximately 7:30 a.m., a 2006 Jeep SUV driven by Stacy Blosser, 29, was southbound on US 33 preparing to make a left turn onto the campus of West Noble High School. At the same time, a 1988 Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by Ned Shisler, 55, was traveling northbound on US 33.

Blosser turned her vehicle into the path of Shisler's motorcycle and was struck on the passenger side as a result. Shisler suffered injuries to his lower extremities and was taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center by Noble County EMS. Blosser was not injured.

Leatherman reminds motorists to be aware of and on the look out for motorcycles as they go about their daily travels. "With the warmer weather, motorcycles will be a more common sight on our roadways" said Leatherman. Assisting at the scene were the Noble County Sheriff Department, Noble County EMS, Ligonier Police Department, Ligonier and Cromwell Fire Departments.
