Indiana House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Tim Brown (R-41) remains hospitalized following a serious motorcycle crash. The incident occurred Wednesday morning during a ride in northern Michigan with Representative Mike Speedy (R-90). Our partners at WFYI report Brown is in critical condition in a Michigan hospital. House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-88) said the motorcycle carrying Brown struck a sport-utility vehicle that pulled out in front of the riders. Speedy, Bosma said, avoided contact with the SUV and was not hurt.

In a statement, Bosma added "out of respect for Tim's family, we cannot confirm any details about his condition at this time. Tim is an invaluable member of our leadership team, a dedicated public servant and one of my most cherished friends. Our prayers are with him, his family and Rep. Speedy."

Governor Eric Holcomb said in a statement: "In addition to being a public servant and an extraordinary leader, Dr. Tim Brown is a fighter. Janet and I are praying for his recovery and ask Hoosiers across the state to join us."

Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch said: "Tim is not only an important part of Indiana's state legislature, but also a wonderful friend and colleague. My thoughts and prayers are with him, his family and State Rep. Mike Speedy."

Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-16) said: "Dr. Brown is a remarkable man and beloved public servant, and I am very sad to hear the news that he has been involved in an accident. I hope Hoosiers will join me in offering thoughts and prayers of healing for Tim and strength for his family during this difficult time."

Senate Minority Leader Tim Lanane (D-25) said: "I am saddened to hear the very concerning news that one of my most respected colleagues, Representative Tim Brown, was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident today. We are relieved to hear that Representative Mike Speedy, who was traveling with him, was not injured. All of our thoughts and prayers are with Representative Brown and his family as we hope for his full recovery."

Brown is a retired emergency room physician and has been a member of the Indiana House since 1994.
