Motorcycle Accident Critically Injures Argos Woman

An Argos woman was critically injured after being involved in a motorcycle accident in Marshall County Friday morning.

A witness to the accident, Deborah Harley of Walkerton, told Marshall County Police officers that she was traveling north on U.S. 31 while behind Lynne E. Brown of Argos, who was driving a motorcycle in the passing lane approaching 14 C Road. Harley said she saw a deer running from the west and started slowing down to avoid the deer. According to Harley, Brown did not slow and ran into the deer as it was crossing the highway.

Brown sustained several injuries in the accident. She was not wearing a helmet and suffered severe brain trauma. She was treated at the scene and airlifted to Memorial Hospital by the Samaritan Helicopter.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department was assisted at the scene by Plymouth Paramedics, Argos EMS, Argos Police and the Argos Fire Department.
