A Wellsville man died Thursday afternoon after crashing his motorcycle into a car in Madison Township in Columbiana County.
Justin D. Knapp, 25, was driving a 2007 Honda motorcycle on Y & O Road (County Road 424) about 2:30 p.m. when he crashed into a 2000 Mercury Sable driven by Samantha M. Baker, 18, also of Wellsville.
The Lisbon post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said Baker was making a left turn out of a private driveway on Y & O Road when she was struck by Knapp. After the crash, Knapp went off the east edge of the roadway, over an embankment and into a thick clump of trees and weeds. He was ejected from his motorcycle and died, the patrol said.
Baker was not injured.
The crash still is under investigation.
