Motorcyclist killed in crash with car at Marion County intersection

MARION COUNTY, OH – A 48-year-old Marion resident lost their life Monday morning near Prospect after a motorcycle crash involving a driver who reportedly ran a stop sign, reports 10 WBNS.

The fatal incident unfolded at the intersection of Gooding Road and Bethlehem Road, at about 5:30 a.m.

An early investigation by the Ohio State Highway Patrol indicates that the victim was operating a 1995 Kawasaki motorcycle southbound on Gooding Road at the same time a driver in a Honda Civic was heading eastbound on Bethlehem Road.

Officials say the Honda driver failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection, and the motorcyclist subsequently collided with the car.

First responders pronounced the rider deceased at the scene.

The condition of the Honda driver was not immediately clear, but they have since been released from Marion General Hospital.

An investigation into the cause of the collision remains open and ongoing. No charges have been reported at this time.
