In light of all the close calls I had in recent weeks, this saddens me and angers meOhio state police are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash in Clermont County. The crash happened shortly before 9 a.m. Thursday on U.S. Route 50 near Owensville.
Police said Rory D. Bushelman, 27, was riding a 1998 Harley Davidson west when 37-year-old Tracy Fletcher turned in front of him.
He braked and swerved to avoid Fletcher's SUV, police said, but his motorcycle overturned, hit the SUV and slid off the side of the road.
Bushelman wasn't wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Neither Fletcher nor her two daughters in the vehicle was injured. The crash remains under investigation.
