A Hicksville, Ohio motorcyclist was killed and another person was seriously hurt after a crash involving a car and a motorcycle along State Road 37 Tuesday night.
It happened just after 8:30 p.m. along State Road 37 between Barnett Road and Bruick Road southwest of Harlan.
Police say a group of motorcyclists were traveling together heading toward Harlan. Police say witnesses told them a man on one of the motorcycles crossed the center line and hit a car head on.
Police say the man on the motorcycle was the only one on the bike at the time of the crash. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The victim was identified Wednesday by the Allen County Coroner’s Office as Troy David Justinger, 51, of Hicksville, Ohio. An autopsy showed Justinger died of blunt force trauma from the crash.
Police say the driver of the car was taken to an area hospital in serious condition.
A third car was involved in the crash, but police say that driver suffered only minor injuries.
State Road 37 was closed between Barnett Road and Bruick Road for several hours as crews cleaned up and investigated the crash. The road was open again early Wednesday morning.
