Two North Vernon locals, Catonya Bottos Patton and her husband, Charlie Patton, were involved in a motorcycle crash that occurred Saturday, July 25. There is no official police report as of yet, but family member, Cassey Bottos Smith, posted on Facebook that her sister and brother-in-law were traveling on Hwy 3 when a white car pulled out in front them.

According to Smith, the couple was thrown 15 feet. Both were seriously injured and taken to two different hospitals.

Catonya Patton was taken into surgery for her leg to repair her femur. She had plates, screws and a rod put in and has a dislocated shoulder and collar bone, among other injuries.

Charlie Patton was on a ventilator, with all his ribs broken, one lung collapsed, blood in his lungs and a broken shoulder.

Cassandra Smith has started a GoFundMe for Catonya and Charlie to raise funding for medical bills and recovery.
