One hurt in motorcycle crash

BROOKVILLE — A Laurel man was flown to an Indianapolis hospital for treatment of injuries he sustained in a motorcycle crash.

Deputies with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department were called at 1:49 a.m. to a motorcycle accident on Stipps Hill and Davison roads, where a 1999 Yamaha YZF motorcycle was in a ditch off of the south side.

Devin Bryce Bennington, 24, of Laurel, apparently lost control while operating the motorcycle eastbound on Stipps Hill Road. It laid over and ejected Bennington, who was not wearing a helmet, police reported.

Bennington was flown from the scene by a medical helicopter to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment of multiple injuries.

Assisting at the scene were the Laurel Volunteer Fire Department, Laurel EMS #3, Clarksburg Volunteer Fire Department and Responder 24.
