SEYMOUR, Ind. – An Ohio woman was injured in a motorcycle crash in Seymour Friday evening.
Police responded to the crash on I-65 northbound near the 55 mile marker around 6 p.m.
An initial investigation indicated that 65-year-old Linda Ramey’s was operating her 2013 Kawasaki motorcycle when she attempted to exit the interstate onto State Route 11 at exit 55.
