A Bremen man was killed Saturday after crashing his motorcycle in Kosciusko County.

Police and medics were called around 1:20 p.m. Saturday to S.R. 13 near C.R. 200 North, north of Pierceton near the Barbee chain of lakes. According to the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department, a northbound motorcycle that had been traveling with a group of other motorcycles crashed there.

Ernsberger was airlifted to South Bend Memorial Hospital for treatment, where he later died from his injuries. Police said Ernsberger suffered multiple head and neck injuries from the crash. 

The crash remains under investigation.
