---- — A 39-year-old man suffered a broken leg Tuesday when he was hit on his motorcycle by a car exiting the Ivy Hills subdivision.

According to a Kokomo Police Department accident report, John Everling, of Kokomo, was riding his 2011 Sportster west on Ind. 26 at about 4:35 p.m. when he was struck by a 2011 Cadillac driven by Lorene Salsberry, 83.
