PARMA -- One person is dead after an accident involving a van and a motorcycle Sunday afternoon.
Police closed the intersection of State Road and Pershing Avenue immediately after the crash. The area has since reopened for traffic.
According to witnesses at the scene, a Silver Ford Windstar was traveling south on State Road driving somewhat "erratically." They say the van cut off multiple cars while changing lanes before attempting a left turn onto Pershing Avenue.
That's when the van and the motorcycle collided with each other.
The motorcycle rider, a Parma Heights resident, was taken by EMS to MetroHealth Medical Center where he later died.
Police haven't disclosed how many people were in the van or whether there were other injuries.
Police closed the roads while an on-scene investigation was conducted.
