A Columbus man is clinging to life after a traffic accident early Tuesday morning.
Columbus Public Safety Spokesman Lt. Matt Myers says at 5:50 a.m., a vehicle driven by 34-year-old Misty Pruitt, of County Road 450 South in Bartholomew County, was driving north on Gladstone Avenue. When Pruitt entered the intersection at State Street, she began making a left turn, not seeing a southbound motorcycle driven by 42-year-old James Jowers of Columbus. Jowers' Harley-Davidson collided with the front of Pruitt's vehicle, catapulting Jowers into her windshield.
Jowers was flown by LifeLine Helicopter to IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis with severe head injuries. Surgery has taken place, but Myers says Jowers' prognosis is not good. Jowers was not wearing a helmet.
We will have more details as they become available.
