A three-vehicle crash south of Pioneer over this past weekend took the life of a motorcyclist.
The Ohio Highway Patrol says 66 year old Craig Parliament of West Unity was stopped at the intersection of Ohio 15 at U.S. 20 when he was hit from behind by a pickup truck driven by 27 year old Delbert Drinnon Jr of Mark Center. Parliament’s motorcycle was then pushed into another vehicle driven by 16 year old Yadira Garcia of Adrian, Michigan.
Parliament’s passenger, 35 year old Connie Shope was taken by air ambulance to Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne.
Parliament, who was not wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene. That crash remains under investigation by police today.
