1 killed, 2 injured in Erie County collision

HURON, Ohio - One person was killed and two others hurt seriously early Sunday when a motorcycle and car collided on Rye Beach Road at State Rt. 2 in Erie County's Huron Township, authorities said.

The motorcycle driver, Charles A. Downing, 58 of Milan, Ohio, was pronounced dead at Firelands Regional Medical Center.

His passenger, Ann M. Downing, 41, also of Milan, was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center and later flown to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center. She was in serious condition there Sunday, a hospital spokesman said.

A passenger in the car, 3-year-old Andrew C. Hovanec of New Brighton, Penn., about 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center and later flown MetroHealth Medical Center. He was in good condition there yesterday, a hospital spokesman said.

Mr. Downing was southbound on Rye Beach Road just after midnight when he struck the northbound car carrying a family of five from New Brighton. Driver Aimee Hovanec, the 3-year-old's mother, was turning left onto a westbound ramp of Route 2.

Mr. Downing and his passenger were thrown from the motorcycle. Mrs. Hovanec, 34, her husband, Martin, 30, and her two other children, Natalie, and Tamara D. Wilson, 10, were treated at Firelands Regional Medical Center.
