Man in critical condition after motorcycle accident

A Trafalgar man is in critical condition after a Thursday evening motorcycle crash.

Mitchell Smith, 19, was riding a motorcycle on County Road 125W near County Road 725S at about 5:40 p.m., when he crashed after going off the road, a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report said.

A witness told deputies that she saw the motorcycle come over a hill on the road on its side and come into her yard, with Smith being thrown, the report said.

Smith was taken to Indiana University Methodist Hospital for treatment, after complaints of pain to his shoulder and upper arm. He was in critical condition Friday morning, a hospital spokesperson said.
