A motorcycle crash near Avilla on Saturday afternoon critically injured a Garrett motorcyclist during a police pursuit.
The Noble County Sheriff’s Department says 32-year-old Kyler Northrop was flown to Parkview Regional Medical Center around 5 p-m.
A DeKalb County deputy was pursuing Northrop at high speed on DeKalb County Road 52, entering Noble County on 100 South. Northrop lost control as he crested a hill at 1200 East and failed to negotiate a small curve in the road.
He left the road and was ejected from the motorcycle, landing in a drainage ditch filled with water.
Police say Northrop’s license was suspended with a total of 82 points currently against his license.
