Today around 2:25 P.M. Steuben County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 8000 block of East SR 120 for a motorcycle accident.

Upon arrival it was observed that a 2003 Suzuki motorcycle driven by Timothy Roden (age 44) of Camden, Michigan had been traveling East on SR 120 at an apparent high rate of speed and failed to negotiate a curve in the road.

The motorcycle went off the North side of the road and slid before coming to a rest.

Roden was flown from the scene to Parkview Regional Medical Center by Samaritan Helicopter for treatment of his injuries.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash which is still under investigation.

Roden was wearing a helmet that reduced the severity of his injuries.
