State Rep. Tim Brown, R-Crawfordsville, was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident Wednesday morning in Northern Michigan, according to Indiana House of Representatives Speaker Brian Bosma.

Brown was reportedly traveling on his motorcycle with State Rep. Mike Speedy, R-Indianapolis, when he struck an SUV that pulled out in front of them. Speedy was able to avoid the vehicle and was uninjured, stated Bosma.

“Out of respect for Tim’s family, we cannot confirm any details about his condition at this time,” stated Bosma. “Tim is an invaluable member of our leadership team, a dedicated public servant and one of my most cherished friends. Our prayers are with him, his family and Rep. Speedy.”

Brown has been in office representing House District 41 (covering Boone, Montgomery, and Tippecanoe counties) since 1994. He was elected to chair the House Ways and Means Committee in 2012. He is a retired emergency room physician and a member of the Indiana State Medical Association.
