INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Four people were involved in a crash during Friday’s Annual Governor’s Motorcycle Ride.

Around 500 American Bikers Aimed Toward Education members participated in the 141-mile long ride that started at the Statehouse Friday morning. The crash occurred just before the final stop in Madison County on State Road 356 at Concord Road, which is just east of Lexington Ind.

Governor Pence was not involved in the crash.

Pence released this statement regarding the incident.

“I was saddened to learn that there was a crash involving several riders in today’s ride. Our prayers are with those who were involved in the crash and with the first responders who are attending to them. We are grateful to these Hoosiers and to all who participated in the Governor’s Annual Motorcycle Ride in support of our National Guard families.”

Preliminary investigations showed one of the drivers went off the right side of the road, causing another driver to run off the road to avoid the first driver. A third driver said he ran off the road when he was attempting to make the turn. He was not trying to avoid the crash. A fourth driver hit the second driver.

Driver one was flown to the University of Louisville Hospital in Louisville, KY for a head injury and wrist and ankle pain. Driver two was taken by ambulance to the University of Louisville Hospital in Louisville, KY with rib and back pain. The third driver was flown to the University of Louisville Hospital in Louisville, KY with back, wrist and collarbone pain. The last driver was not injured.

None of the injuries were life threatening.
