St. Joseph County- A weekend motorcycle crash on the Indiana Toll Road has claimed the life of a female passenger.
Just after 8:30 p.m. on August 14, 2021, troopers responded to a single-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle on the Indiana Toll Road near the 74 mile marker. This is approximately three miles west of the Notre Dame Exit.
Preliminary investigation by Trooper Brett Adair indicates that a grey 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by Terrence Foster, 45 of Columbus, OH was travelling eastbound when the motorcycle suffered possible rear tire failure causing him to lose control of the motorcycle. Foster and a female passenger were thrown from the motorcycle, which came to rest in the center median.
Foster was transported to Memorial Hospital in South Bend, IN with injuries believed to be serious but not life-threatening. The female passenger was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The identity of the deceased female passenger will be released pending positive identification and notification of family members.
The eastbound and westbound passing lanes were blocked for crash investigation and removal of the motorcycle.
The Indiana State Police was assisted by the South Bend Fire Department and EMS and the St. Joseph County Coroner.
