Man sustains 'significant' injuries when motorcycle collides with tree

A Lawrenceburg man suffered what first responders described as “significant head and chest injuries” when the motorcycle he was riding earlier this evening smacked into a tree on Ninevah Road.

People at the scene identified the victim as Dwayne Hawkins, 50, who lives nearby and had to be airlifted to an area hospital. They said that Hawkins’ family had been notified and left the scene shortly after the helicopter transporting him took off.
