Follow Daily Journal:

A southside woman was killed this weekend in Johnson County after the motorcycle her husband was driving collided with a truck.

Wanda Honeycutt, 53, of Indianapolis, died Saturday afternoon after being taken to Indiana University Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, according to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report.

Her husband, Jerrold Honey-cutt, 54, suffered a head injury and was taken to Methodist. His condition was unavailable Sunday afternoon.

The Honeycutts lived in a neighborhood between Southport and County Line Roads in Marion County.


They were traveling north on State Road 37, nearing the intersection at Smith Valley Road about 5 p.m. Saturday. The motorcycle was in the right lane of the road, and Jerrold Honeycutt was trying to turn into the right turn lane, but a truck driven by James Mize, 68, of Greenwood, already was in the lane, the report said.

The Honeycutt’s motorcycle struck the driver’s side of the truck, causing Jerrold Honeycutt to lose control.

He and Wanda Honeycutt both were thrown from the motorcycle, the report said.

Certified blood tests are being conducted on both drivers, which is standard procedure after a serious accident.

The speed limit along State Road 37 is 55 mph. While it had been raining Saturday afternoon, weather likely wasn’t a factor in the crash, Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox said.
