Drunk driving is suspected to have played a role in at least four out of five area traffic crashes involving motorcycles this weekend. Two of those crashes resulted in fatalities.
A 25-year-old man from Carlisle was killed Saturday night when he drove his motorcycle off the right side of Greenbush Road in Preble County and hit a utility pole.
The crash occurred at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday just east of Gratis-Jacksonburg Road.
Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. David Robison said Derrick Hamilton was wearing sunglasses while riding in the dark and was believed to be intoxicated at the time of the crash. He was not wearing a helmet and an initial coroner’s report indicates that his spinal cord was severed in the crash.
