Poland man killed in Ohio motorcycle accident

There will always be a large number of people in Ohio who enjoy driving their motorcycle. Some do so on a regular basis, while others only take their hog out for special occasions. Regardless, it is important for all vehicles, no matter the type, to share the road at all times.

According to Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers, a man was killed in a motorcycle accident in Boardman Township. The 59-year-old man was killed when his motorcycle was involved in an accident with a Jeep Wrangler on Route 224.

It has been reported that the 16-year-old driver of the Jeep turned into the path of the motorcycle, subsequently leading to the accident. A member of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said that all factors will be considered during the investigation. "We look at not only the drivers, their ages, skills, abilities and habits. We look at the vehicle, was the vehicle working properly?"

The driver of the Jeep was not injured in the accident; however, a passenger was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital for treatment.

The eastbound lane of the road was blocked to traffic for more than an hour as police investigated the scene.

Ohio motorcycle accidents are more common than they should be, with many of these incidents a result of driver negligence. There are times when the motorcyclist makes a mistake, as well as circumstances in which another driver is at fault. In the case of an injury or death, the victim or their family may wish to consider their legal options, potentially filing a claim against the at-fault party.
