Mr. Chamlee, who was wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.

In a collision about 90 minutes later, a Sandusky woman was killed when the motorcycle she was driving was struck by a sport utility vehicle on State Rt. 101 just south of Sandusky, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.
