A Syracuse man was badly injured Wednesday evening after his motorcycle hit a stopped vehicle pulling a trailer.

About 6:30 p.m., Daniel List, 56, was headed south on Indiana 13 near South Shore Golf Club when he encountered a stopped pickup truck with a trailer, according to the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department.

A Turkey Creek Township EMS unit saw the crash and quickly cared for List.

He was flown in critical condition to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne.
