Motorcyclist seriously hurt in West Chester crash

Motorcycle crash on Ohio 747

WEST CHESTER TWP., Ohio (FOX19) - A motorcyclist was seriously hurt in a two-vehicle crash in West Chester Wednesday morning, a township spokeswoman said.

Eastbound Muhlhauser Road was shut down before Ohio 747 near Sugar Creek Packing Co. while police investigated. It has since reopened.

Rescue crews responded just after 6 a.m. when the collision was first reported, according to Barb Wilson, township spokeswoman.

A sport utility vehicle was pulling left out of the packing company’s parking lot onto Muhlhauser Road and did not see the oncoming motorcycle, which “appears to have had no lights,” Wilson said.

“The motorcycle t-boned the vehicle and threw the rider from the bike,” she said.

The motorcyclist was taken to a hospital with a serious leg injury, but it is not life-threatening, she added.

The crash remains under investigation.
