According to Trooper Brad Mull, Elizabeth Chamers, 11, of Bicknell, was operating a 2013 SSR Motorsports mini-bike in a vacant lot near 913 West Fourth Street.

She lost control, crossed a sidewalk causing the mini-bike to become airborne and landing in the roadway. She continued out of control and collided into a parked Chevrolet SUV.

Chamers was initially taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes, but she was later airlifted to St. Mary's Hospital in Evansville where she is currently being treated for serious injuries.

Chamers was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
