Motorcyclist flown to Wichita after weekend crash
motorcycle crash Allison 10-2019

Barton County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to an injury crash at 6:20 p.m. on Saturday Oct. 5, at the Barton/Russell County line on the Susank blacktop. A 2012 Harley-Davidson operated by Gregory Allison, age 60 of rural Great Bend, was westbound on the county line on a motorcycle. Investigation at the scene indicates Allison failed to negotiate the curve going south onto Susank Road. 

The motorcycle went into the skid, sliding over 100 feet. Allison was thrown from the bike, landing in the west ditch. A helicopter was called to the scene and Allison was transported by air ambulance to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. Deputies believe excess speed was a contributing factor. Allison’s condition is not known as of last Monday morning.
