HOLLAND — An Evansville motorcyclist was killed in a collision with a car Sunday afternoon at the Holland Junction.
The victim was identified as William S. Ashby, 41, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies reported that Ashby was eastbound on State Road 64 operating a 2009 Honda CBR 1000 at the time of the 3:06 p.m. accident. A westbound 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by 57-year-old Lori Ann Baker, of 306 Fifth St., Holland, attempted to turn south onto State Road 161 and turned into the path of the motorcycle, police said.
Ashby, who was wearing a helmet, was ejected from the bike and landed in the roadway. His helmet came off during the crash and he sustained multiple trauma, police said. He was treated at the scene and was taken by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper but succumbed to his injuries, deputies said.
Baker and a passenger in her car, Dorothy M. Baker, of the same Holland address, were both treated at Memorial Hospital. Police said the driver was treated and released after complaining of pain. Dorothy Baker, whose age was not immediately available, suffered rib fractures, police said.
The accident totaled the car and the motorcycle.
Deputies cited Lori Baker for failure to yield the right of way.
The Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department, LifeFlight helicopter ambulance, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker assisted.
