Crash with van kills Toledo motorcyclist

A 27-year-old Toledoan was killed Sunday when his motorcycle struck a van on Hill Avenue at Longmeadow Drive in Springfield Township, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

Christopher Taylor was pronounced dead at the University of Toledo Medical Center, formerly the Medical College of Ohio, troopers said.

He was eastbound on Hill about 1:45 p.m. when his motorcycle hit the westbound van, driven by Mathew Wills, 21, of Oregon, as it attempted to turn left onto Longmeadow, troopers said.

Mr. Wills, who was wearing a seat belt, suffered minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene, troopers said.

Mr. Taylor, who was wearing a helmet, was thrown from the motorcycle, which caught fire.
