A man was killed and three other people were hurt last night when two motorcycles and a pickup truck collided on West Laskey Road at Burnham Avenue.

The man, whose name was not available last night, was taken to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center where he died, authorities said.

Two other victims were taken to St. Vincent and a fourth was taken to Toledo Hospital.

Their identities and conditions were not available. The two women in the truck were not hurt.

Two people were reported unconscious when authorities responded to the accident, which was reported about

9:10 p.m.

Marty West, who was headed westbound on Laskey and witnessed the crash, said the motorcycles passed him and then he saw one collide with the truck at Burnham and the other motorcycle hit the bike in front of it.

"They tangled up and then all of them hit the floor," he said

It appears the truck attempted to turn left onto Burnham, but the driver realized the road was closed and merged back into the left westbound lane of Laskey, where the motorcycles collided with it, authorities said.

One man and one woman rode each cycle, and none wore a helmet, police at the scene said.

Laskey was closed between Bennett Road and Lewis Avenue for several hours while crews were on scene.

Additional information about the crash was not available last night.
