A Fortville man was killed when the motorcycle he was riding left the road and hit a tree.
Charles H. Theobald IV, a 45-year-old from Fortville, was traveling south on Southeastern Parkway in the far southeastern part of Hamilton County Sunday night around 9:20. The 2010 Harley-Davidson XL 1200 left the road on a curve and went down an embankment where it struck a tree.
Medics attempted first aid treatment, but Theobald was pronounced dead at the scene. Toxicology test results are pending to determine if impairment contributed to the fatal crash. Theobald was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Crash Team investigated. They said there were no witnesses and if anyone has any information to please contact them at (317) 773-1872.
