An investigation conducted by Pulaski County Sheriff’s Deputy Seth Barton reportedly determined that the male driver was operating the motorcycle with the adult female passenger on the back when he apparently attempted to avoid a collision with a deer, causing him to lose control of the vehicle.
According to authorities, alcohol is believed to be factor in this incident and Daniel Frazier is allegedly suspected of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
Police note that the motor vehicle crash is an ongoing investigation and all suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
A motor vehicle crash re-constructionist from Logansport Police Department assisted with the investigation. The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department was also assisted by the Winamac Police Department, Medaryville Volunteer Fire Department, Pulaski County EMS and Samaritan Medical Transport.
