The Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office says a Crescent man was injured when the motorcycle he was riding slammed into a car Monday evening, about two-miles southwest of McClelland. Sheriff Jeff Danker says 38-year-old Chad Mayberry was transported to a Council Bluffs hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, following the crash at around 5:30-p.m., on Honeysuckle Road near McClelland Avenue. 

Danker says Mayberry was traveling east on Honeysuckle Road at about 60-miles per hour in a posted 35-mph zone. When he came over the top of a hill, the cycle hit one of two vehicles which were stopped on the road, before veering into the south ditch and coming to rest. The driver of the car Mayberry hit, 47-year-old Robert Hirchert, of Omaha, was not injured. 

An investigation revealed the cycle had allegedly been stolen out of Omaha. Mayberry was cited for failure to maintain control, excessive speed, driving while barred and driving without insurance.
