(LaPorte County, IN) - One person was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident
this morning in LaPorte County.
It happened about 3 a.m. at State Road 2 and Wozniak Road at Pinhook.
Reports indicate a helicopter airlifted a patient identified by LaPorte County Police as 39-year old William Hoggard of Cedar Lake.
Police say alcohol was determined to be a contributing factor in the crash.
He was eastbound on a 2002 Harley Davidson motorcycle when he failed to negotiate a curve.
Police said Hoggard suffered an injury to his lower body.
State Road 2 has since reopened.
Barb Elliott says the motorcycle wound up about 20 feet from her front door
at Pinhook curve.
She says many accidents have occurred at the dangerous curve over the years
even after the curve was sloped to make it safer to travel years ago.
