Motorcyclist is killed in S. Byrne Rd. crash

A Toledo man was killed Friday when his motorcycle and a car collided on South Byrne Road between Glendale Avenue and Schneider Road, police said.

Eric Misejka, 28, of 1829 Meadowlark Ave., was pronounced dead at Medical College of Ohio Hospitals shortly after the crash.

Mr. Misejka was heading south on Byrne about 5 p.m. when a car driven by Joshua Holmes, 26, of 1326 Stanwix Drive, pulled into his path, police said.

Mr. Holmes told police that he initially did not see Mr. Misejka s motorcycle as he was pulling out of a parking lot at 1604 South Byrne.

Mr. Holmes tried to accelerate to avoid a collision once he saw the motorcycle, but by then it was too late and the motorcycle crashed into the car, police said.

The crash remains under investigation, police said.
