TERRE HAUTE — A truck-motorcycle accident resulted in minor injuries Wednesday afternoon at U.S. 41 near Evans Avenue in northern Vigo County, police said.

William Kinnaman, 65, of Mattoon, Ill., suffered lacerations and abrasions and was transported by ambulance to Union Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Vigo County Sheriff’s officials said.

A pickup truck being driven by Dennis Hoffman, 51, of Terre Haute had been traveling east on Evans Avenue and was stopped at the stop sign, police said. Hoffman said he did not see a northbound motorcycle being driven by Kinnaman, police said, and pulled into Kinnaman’s path.

Police said alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
