NEW PARIS — A Syracuse man was airlifted to a hospital Thursday morning after his motorcycle crashed into a pickup truck.

Emergency crews were called to S.R. 15 and Tarman Road in New Paris at 11:35 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 7, for a report of a two-vehicle crash, according to a news release from the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department.

Investigators from the sheriff’s department found that a Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by Connie Hernandez, 49, of Goshen, was stopped facing westbound on Tarman Road at the stop sign at S.R. 15.

The motorcycle, driven by 24-year-old Adrian Miller of Syracuse, was going northbound on S.R. 15 approaching the intersection.

Hernandez entered the intersection to turn left in front of Miller and the vehicles collided.

Miller was ejected from the motorcycle and was taken to the Goshen Municipal Airport, where he was airlifted to a hospital for treatment of a head injury.

Hernandez was cited for failure to yield the right of way.

The news release did not indicate whether Miller had been wearing a helmet, the extent of his injuries or which hospital he was taken to.
