Michigan man thrown from motorcycle in Miami County crash

A two-car crash injured a Michigan man in Miami County.


Officers from the Indiana State Police, the Peru Police Department, and the Miami County Sheriff’s Department responded to the crash on U.S. 31 at Business 31. A Niles, MI, man was injured. 


The preliminary crash investigation by Senior Troopers Jeremy Perez and A.J. Coffee revealed that Jorge Gomez, 25, of Peru, was driving a 2015 Dodge Durango westbound on Business U.S. 31, attempting to turn south on U.S. 31. The Durango had a green light and the right of way.


John Frasure, 27, of Niles, MI, was driving a 1985 Honda CB650 motorcycle northbound on U.S. 31, approaching a red light at Business U.S. 31. Indiana State Police say Frasure did not stop for the red light and continued through the intersection and hit the Dodge in the passenger side. Frasure was ejected from the motorcycle.


Frasure was flown from the crash scene by a Lutheran medical helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital. At last check, he had numerous broken bones but was in stable condition.


Gomez was not injured.
