Motorcyclist killed in Ohio accident

Law enforcement sources report that a two-vehicle accident in Plymouth Township around 3 p.m. on Aug. 18 left a motorcyclist dead and another driver injured. Ohio Health Med Central in Shelby pronounced the motorcyclist dead from injuries he sustained in the accident. The driver of the car had to be extricated from her vehicle before medical personnel were able to airlift her by helicopter to Grant Hospital in Columbus.

According to local police, the accident occurred on Ohio 61 in Richland County. Accident events unfolded when a 24-year-old Shelby woman driving a 2003 Pontiac southbound allegedly crossed the centerline and struck a 65-year-old Willard man driving a 2014 Harley Davidson motorcycle northbound. Troopers were assisted by several emergency service providers including the Plymouth Fire Department and Mansfield Ambulance Service following the accident, and an investigation into the cause of the accident was ongoing at the time of the report.

When a fatal motorcycle accident occurs, those who have lost their loved one may wish to seek compensation for their damages by using the services provided by a personal injury attorney. Monetary damages may be sought for such things as loss of companionship, funeral expenses, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

Any operator of a motor vehicle may be found as the at-fault party for any injuries caused in an accident if it can be proven that he or she drove in a manner that contributed to the cause of that accident. For instance, it may be proven that an individual was operating the vehicle while fatigued, traveling at speeds too high for road conditions or attempting to use a cellphone to text or talk while driving.
