ELKHART — A Bristol man was airlifted to the hospital with multiple broken bones after his motorcycle crashed into another vehicle late Friday afternoon.

Dale Litzenber, 61, was riding his motorcycle southbound on C.R. 19 north of Timber Ridge Road shortly after 5 p.m. when he attempted to pass a minivan driving in front of him.

As Litzenberg attempted to pass the minivan, the vehicle turned left onto Timber Ridge Road.

Litzenberg’s motorcycle collided with the back of the vehicle. He suffered broken ribs, a broken left leg and complained of pain to the neck, back and right wrist.

The driver of the minivan, Robert Conrad, 45, of Elkhart, was uninjured.

Conrad told Elkhart County Sheriff’s Deputies that he had used the left turn signal and braked to slow down before the turn.

Litzenberg said he did not see that Conrad was about to turn.

No citations were issued at the scene.
