An accident on Highway 41 snarls traffic between Indiana and Kentucky. Evansville police responded to the accident just before 7p.m. It happened on the off ramp from Highway 41 to Veterans Memorial Parkway. Officers tell us a motorcyclist was traveling north on 41 when he lost control while getting onto the off ramp. Investigators say he crashed into a car then slid into the embankment. We're told the motorcyclist was injured but he refused treatment.

Sergeant Lonnie Rahm says, "if you're on a motorcylce you have to be a little bit more aware of your surroundings and even if you're in a car. You still have to be aware of the bikes around. There are bikes all over the place".

The car involved in the crash was towed from the scene. The motorcycle is reportedly totaled.
