Original Post: On August 30, 2013 at approximately 3:12 p.m. Darke County 911 received a call in reference to an injury accident on SR121 at US36 W, which involved a pickup truck and a motorcycle.  Darke County Deputies, along with New Madison Fire and Tri-Village Rescue were dispatched to the scene.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a 2000 Chevy Silverado operated by Lucas Etchison (25) of Frankton, IN, was eastbound on US36W.  Etchison stopped at the intersection then pulled out into the intersection in front of a 2001 Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by Michael Beard (64) of Greenville, which was southbound on SR121.  Beard's motorcycle hit the front of Etchison's vehicle, which caused Beard to be ejected from the motorcycle.  Beard was treated by Tri-Village Rescue and was transported by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital.  Beard's condition is unknown at this time. Etchison refused treatment from Tri-Village.

Etchison was cited for Failure to Yield at a Stop Sign.
