A Franklin man is in an Indianapolis hospital after crashing an allegedly stolen motorcycle Thursday morning in Edinburgh.
Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox says that 24-year-old Cody Morris was traveling “well above the posted speed limit” when he crashed the motorcycle while headed south on County Road 800 East near State Road 252. Authorities say that the crash happened just before 11 a.m. They add that the motorcycle was reported stolen out of Shelby County.
According to the report, Morris was taken to Johnson Memorial Hospital, where he allegedly refused to talk to investigators. The report further states that Morris was being prepped for transport to an Indianapolis hospital for treatment of a head injury.
Sheriff Cox says that Morris was not arrested and that the investigation is ongoing.
