CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
Services are set for the Cincinnati firefighter who was killed in a crash while he was on his way to work at Station 12 Sunday morning.
Jordan Pieniazek, 31, died on his way to work as he rode his motorcycle southbound in the 5100 block of Winton Road, police said. A Toyota Avalon crossed the center line and hit him head-on.
A celebration of life service will be held Friday at 3 p.m. at Vineyard Cincinnati at 11340 Century Circle E., Cincinnati, OH 45246. The service will be followed by fellowship of friends and family.
The driver of the Toyota, Patric Tucker, was charged on May 4 with vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter in the crash, both are misdemeanor charges.
Impairment does not appear to be a factor in the crash, but investigators are looking into whether distracted driving played a role, Cincinnati Police Lt. Bruce Hoffbauer said at a press conference Monday.
Pieniazek leaves behind a wife and three small children.
