ELYRIA TWP. — An Elyria man was killed in a crash Saturday afternoon after he was ejected from his motorcycle on North Ridge Road.
A news release from the Ohio Highway Patrol said Tyler Marrero, 23, was traveling west on North Ridge Road behind a 2007 yellow Chevrolet Cobalt, and the two vehicles collided. Marrero’s motorcycle overturned, and he was pronounced dead after being taken to University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center.
The driver of the Cobalt fled the scene, the patrol said, and was later identified as Danny Emery, 28, also of Elyria. Emery was found at his home and is cooperating with the investigation.
The patrol said drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the crash, which is under investigation and will be referred to the Lorain County Prosecutor’s Office for potential charges.
