FAIRFIELD TWP, HIGHLAND COUNTY (FOX19 NOW) -

Speed is a factor in a crash that killed a 28-year-old motorcyclist Wednesday night.

Jeffrey L. Taylor of Greenfield lost control of his 2009 Yamaha FZR6 motorcycle as he crested a hill on northbound Fairfield Road near Rollinson Lae, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol's Highland County post.

The bike ran off the left side of the road and slammed into a mail, ejecting Taylor, about 6:30 p.m.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

He wore a helmet. 

Speed is a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation, troopers said.
