OAKLAND CITY, IN (WFIE) -

An overnight accident in Oakland City leads to a man being airlifted to an Evansville Hospital.

Indiana State Police say a car collided with a motorcycle at the intersection of State Road 57 and State Road 64 just before 9 o'clock Monday night.

Troopers say the rider of the motorcycle, 43-year-old Michael Shafer, of Oakland City, was not wearing a helmet.

Authorities say he was airlifted to Deaconess Hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the car, 18-year-old Brittany Bauer of Vincennes was not taken to a hospital.

Last December, Shafer was arrested in connection with a one pot meth lab found at Wood Memorial.

Shafer is listed in fair condition after the Monday night accident.
