Sullivan motorcyclist injured in T-bone collision Saturday

Posted

A Sullivan motorcyclist traveling west on Highway 28 Saturday was struck broadside by an Owensville man attempting to turn left onto the roadway from Cuba Street.

Owensville police report James P. Reed, 77, of Sullivan, 2006 Harley-Davidson, suffered a leg injury in the crash reported at 10:25 a.m. May 23 at the intersection of Highway 28 and Cuba Street.

Nicholas T. Minnigerode, 41, Owensville, was driving a 2006 Lincoln Navigator from a stopped position facing south on Cuba Street.

City patrolman Brenn Finley arrived and found Reed injured in the eastbound lane of Highway 28. Ambulance personnel told him Reed had suffered a broken right femur and had road rash on both of his arms and his chest. He was transported to Mercy Hospital-Washington.

Minnegerode was not hurt.

Reed’s grandson, Roger Reed, was riding a separate motorcycle ahead of his grandfather as they rode through town. He told police he looked back in his rear-view mirror and saw a black SUV drive through the intersection and “T-bone” his grandfather’s motorcycle.

The impact threw his grandfather off of  the motorcycle and into the eastbound lane of the highway.

Minnegerode told police he watched as the first motorcycle passed in front of him as he was waiting to turn left onto Highway 28 from Cuba Street. He said he did not see the second motorcycle and when he pulled out he struck the following motorcycle.

Heather B. Cason, 47, Owensville, was an occupant of Minnegerode’s vehicle and did not see the second motorcyclist either, she told police. She said a parked vehicle at a nearby residence could have possibly obstructed the view of oncoming vehicles.
