Sitter was southbound on Salt Creek Road, headed toward State Road 46, when he lost control of his 2007 Honda motorcycle, laying it down left of center and directly into the path of a Brown County highway department grader tractor. The grader driver, a county highway department employee, tried but was unable to avoid Sitter, according to an Indiana State Police report.
