Motorcyclist Flown From Scene

A Hopewell man operating a 2000 Harley-Davidson was flown from a crash scene in Wells Township last Wednesday afternoon. State police troopers reported Brian Keith Sloan, 46, was airlifted to Altoona Hospital with moderate injuries immediately following the 4:54 p.m. accident along Route 915.

Sloan, police said, attempted to pass a John Deere 7800 tractor as operator Elverne Eugene Martin, 26, of Martinsburg, was turning left into a farm field. The motorcycle struck the side of the tractor, causing it to become disabled.

Hustontown Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Co. rendered assistance on the scene as did Tin Man Body Shop.
