Written by

The Summit County Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal accident that happened in the City of Green Sunday evening. 

According to the report, a 2017 Suzuki Gladius motorcycle was traveling southbound on South Main Street when a 1999 Ford Escort, heading northbound, attempted to make a left turn into a home along South Main Street. The Escort crossed traffic and the motorcycle collided with it, launching the rider off of the bike. The 20-year-old rider ended up nearly 50 feet from the original accident spot. His bike landed in northbound traffic along South Main, where another driver ran into it. 

The motorcyclist was transported by the Green Fire Department to Akron City Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The 22-year-old female driver of the Escort suffered minor injuries on the scene. The other driver was unharmed.

No charges have been filed yet and it is unclear whether speed, alcohol, or other drugs factored into the crash. It remains under investigation.
