AirCare responds to Hamilton motorcycle crash

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A motorcyclist was seriously hurt in a two-vehicle crash in Hamilton Monday night.

Jeffrey Hembree, 44, of Germantown Ohio, was airlifted to University of Cincinnati Medical Center and is listed in serious-to-critical condition, said Sgt. Ed Buns, Hamilton police spokesman.

Hembree was riding his 2006 Yamaha motorcycle south on Ohio 4 near Hooven Avenue when he ran into the back of a 2011 Nissan Titan pickup truck, about 5:15 p.m., Buns said.

Hembree was thrown from his bike. He was not wearing a helmet.

The other motorist was not hurt.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Drugs and possibly alcohol are factors, Buns said.
