Jeremy Scott Pines, 50, of Worthington, Indiana, was initially transported by United Ambulance to Southeastern Med following the crash on Byesville Road. He was later flown to the Columbus hospital by MedFlight medical helicopter.
According to police reports, Pines was operating a 2000 Harley-Davidson motorcycle north on Byesville Road at approximately 7:37 p.m. Friday when he struck the back of a motorcycle driven by James B. Secrest IV, 30, of Kimbolton.
The 1996 Harley Davidson operated by Secrest was reportedly stopped on Byesville Road waiting to make a left turn onto Central Avenue when it was struck from behind by the other motorcycle.
A 911 call to the Guernsey County Sheriff's Office reported Pines was lying on the roadway following the collision. Police said he was not wearing a helmet.
The Harley-Davidson driven by Pines sustained extensive damage and was towed from the scene. The motorcycle operated by Secrest sustained minor damage.
