Speeding motorcycle crashes, shuts down Rt. 12

NORTH NORWICH – Thursday afternoon, a sheriff’s patrol car passed a speeding motorcycle along State Highway 12 and the deputy called for area units to be on the lookout for it headed north. Within moments of the radio alert, a 911 call reported the same motorcycle had crashed less than half a mile from where it passed the police car.



The motorcycle’s driver, 20-year-old Jordan R. Oliver of Norwich, was flown to SUNY Upstate Medical University at Syracuse by Guthrie Air helicopter. Emergency crews at the scene said Oliver was thrown from his bike in the single vehicle crash before striking a steel guardrail and suffering serious injuries to his legs, one of which was “partially amputated.”
