Maumee motorcyclist killed in truck crash

A Maumee man was killed yesterday when his motorcycle collided with a tractor-trailer on U.S. 24 at State Rt. 578, across the Maumee River from Grand Rapids, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

Todd D. Zielinski, Jr., 18, was pronounced dead at the scene, troopers at the patrol's Toledo post said.

Mr. Zielinski, who was wearing a helmet, was northbound on Route 578 about 5:45 p.m. when he stopped at a stop sign and then pulled into the path of the tractor-trailer, which was being driven east on U.S. 24 by Joseph P. Cupp, 40, of Taylor, Mich., troopers said. He was not hurt.
