GREENFIELD — A Greenfield man was flown to the hospital by air ambulance Monday afternoon after his moped was struck by a pickup truck that was driving behind him.
Thomas Jessup, 55, was westbound on his moped in the 2700 block of West Main Street when a truck driven by Carissa Dalton, 22, of Greenfield, struck the moped from behind. Police at the scene said Jessup was waiting to turn when Dalton failed to stop.
When police arrived, Jessup was pinned beneath the pickup truck. He was conscious and alert as officers pulled him from beneath the truck. A helmet was found in the roadway near the scene of the accident when officers arrived, but it was unclear late Monday whether Jessup had been wearing the helmet or carrying it with him.
Jessup was flown by air ambulance to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis. A condition report was not available at press time.
