One killed and one injured in Richmond Township crash

RICHMOND TOWNSHIP — A Pierpont Township man was killed and a Conneaut man seriously injured in a motorcycle accident on Hall Road early Saturday morning.

Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers were called to the scene, less than a mile west of Route 6, at about 12:34 a.m. The Ashtabula County Coroner’s Office responded to the scene as well.

Preliminary investigation shows Johnathan W. Parr, 28, of Conneaut, was eastbound on Hall Road on a 1986 Honda CMX 250 motorcycle. Parr traveled left-of-center and sideswiped David J. Brown, 32, of Pierpont, who was westbound on a 1982 Honda C25 motorcycle, according to OHP.

Both drivers were ejected from their bikes at the time of impact. Neither was wearing a helmet.

Brown was pronounced dead at the scene by medical personnel, according to OHP.

Parr was transported to St. Joseph Clinic in Andover and immediately flown by medical helicopter to St. Elizabeth’s Trauma Center in Youngstown, according to OHP. His condition is unknown.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash.

The crash is still under investigation by OHP.
