A red Subaru SUV was traveling west on US 322 at a high rate of speed when crashed into the rear of a black Kia minivan traveling in the same direction on US 322. The red Subaru overturned as a result and struck two motorcyclists that were traveling eastbound on US 322.

The Subaru then struck a Buick traveling behind the motorcyclists before coming to a rest at the intersection.

The driver of the red Subaru suffered life threatening injuries and was flown to University Hospitals (UH) Cleveland. One of the two motorcyclists suffered a fatal injury and was pronounced dead. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The second motorcyclist suffered serious injuries and was transported by ambulance to UH Geauga.

Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the crash but have not been ruled out at this time.
