A Saturday morning motorcycle accident in Kenton, Ohio resulted in one man being life-flighted to the hospital. The crash occurred on US 68 when 60-year-old Pat Stidman hit a deer and lost control of his motorcycle. He suffered life-threatening injuries from the accident.
The second motorcycle accident happened in Wood County on U.S. 23. The Ohio State Highway Patrol said that 51-year-old Duane Baker lost control of his Harley and overturned on the roadway. He was also taken by life-flight from the scene, transported to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center with serious injuries.
