2 injured in motorcycle vs. car crash in Saline County


Two people were injured in a crash Saturday in Saline County as the motorcycle they were on crossed into the path of an oncoming car.

According to the preliminary traffic crash investigation Ronald A. Brachear, 61, of Harrisburg, Ill., was driving a motorcycle north bound on US Route 45 at Mandella Trce in Saline County at around 9 p.m. Saturday night.

That's when police say he crossed the center line into the south bound lane, and struck another car, driven by Timothy L. Warren, 27, of Vienna, Ill.

Brachear, and his passenger Gwendolyn S. Jones, 54, also of Harrisburg, were transported from the crash scene by the Saline County Ambulance Service to an area hospital. 

Brachear was later transferred to a hospital in Evansville, Indiana, while Jones was transferred to a hospital in St. Louis, Missouri.

Warren refused medical treatment at the crash scene.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.

The crash remains under investigation.
