JASPER — A Jasper man was injured Monday morning after the bike he was riding was hit by a sport utility vehicle.
Frank Ducett, 73, was taken to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center following the 11:11 a.m. accident. He was found to have a broken ankle, laceration to his head and road rash on multiple areas of the body, Jasper Police reported.
Alicen Ingle, 47, of Jasper, was driving north in the 3600 block of Portersville Road nearing a crosswalk that Ducett was attempting to cross, police said. Ingle’s 2005 Chevy Trailblazer hit the left of Ducett’s bicycle, which threw him from the bike onto the roadway, police said; the bike was thrown about 25 yards north.
The accident damaged the Trailblazer’s front left bumper and driver side mirror, police said.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and the Indiana State Police assisted Jasper Police at the scene.
