Jeffery Mast, 22, of Nappanee, had broken teeth and complained of pain to his head, neck and face.
Mast was driving his motorcycle east on C.R. 40 east of C.R. 7 at 11:23 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, according to a press release from the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department. Mast attempted to pass a single horse-drawn buggy to the left of the roadway as the buggy was attempting to turn left into a driveway.

The man driving the buggy was not injured. Mast was issued a warning for improper passing.
