Family members say a Lynwood police officer from northwest Indiana was critically injured in a motorcycle accident in Iowa Saturday. 38-year-old Craig Barnes, originally from Highland and currently from Burns Harbor, was on a trip with friends and fellow officers when the accident occurred. Family members say he needs to be transported from Iowa to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago for further neurological treatment, but insurance will not cover the ten-thousand dollar airlift cost.  Barnes' brother-in-law, Bill Zientara of Porter, created a GoFundMe webpage that went online Tuesday to raise the money needed. As of this morning the page had raised over 14-thousand dollars  [Photo/provided: Officer Barnes and his wife Jennifer]. Link to page: http://www.gofundme.com/af3npc#
