Lisa Szewczyk

From News and Tribune

A Delaware woman was killed and her husband was seriously injured Thursday after they were thrown from a motorcycle during a crash near mile marker six on Interstate 65 southbound in Clark County.

According to a press release from Indiana State Police, Lisa Szewczyk, 52, of Delmar, Del., was the passenger on a 2006 Harley-Davidson motorcycle being driven by 45-year-old Edward M. Szewczyk, when the accident occurred about 4:20 p.m.

Clark County Coroner Edwin “Huck” Coots declared Lisa Szewczyk dead at the scene of the accident. Edward Szewczyk was air-lifted to University Hospital in Louisville with life-threatening injuries, according to ISP.

A preliminary investigation found a semi-trick was traveling southbound on I-65 near exit 7 when the rear passenger tires came off a trailer being pulled by the truck. One of the tires rolled into the grass on the west side of the interstate, but the other tire rolled into traffic and came to rest in the far left lane of I-65.

The Szewczyks, also traveling southbound, struck the tire in the interstate and were ejected from from their motorcycle, the release said. Neither of them was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

The driver of the semi, William A. Ross from Ransom, Ill., was not injured.
