Motorcycle-SUV crash hurts 2

A Perrysburg man suffered serious injuries yesterday when his motorcycle and a sport utility vehicle collided, closing the intersection of State Rt. 795 and Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township for about an hour. The SUV driver also was injured.

Carl Coble, Jr., 52, driver of the motorcycle, was flown to the University of Toledo Medical Center, formerly the Medical College of Ohio, with life-threatening injuries, the Ohio Highway Patrol said. A hospital spokesman said she had no information about a person by that name.

Mr. Coble was northbound on Oregon about 6:30 a.m. when his motorcycle struck the driver's side of an SUV driven by John Burkhart, 42, of Bowling Green, who was making a left turn from a parking lot onto southbound Oregon just north of Route 795, troopers at the patrol's Bowling Green post said.

Mr. Burkhart was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, where a spokesman said he was listed in fair condition. The crash remains under investigation.
