Highway Patrol investigating serious injury, hit-skip crash
ELIDA — The Ohio State Highway Patrol Lima Post is investigating a serious injury crash on SR 309 near Grubb Road, east of Delphos and west of Elida, that occurred at 9:25 a.m. Saturday.
Myron J. Fridley, 57, of Delphos was driving a 1982 Honda Goldwing motorcycle westbound on SR 309. Just west of Grubb Road, Fridley was forced off the right side of the roadway by a silver or gray older model of a Pontiac Grand AM that was eastbound on SR 309. Fridley lost control of his motorcycle and crashed onto the roadway causing the motorcycle and Fridley to roll over a couple times before coming to rest in the roadway.
The Pontiac Grand AM continued eastbound on SR 309, never slowing or stopping. The Pontiac was being operated by an unknown younger white male with a thin build.
Witnesses at the scene advised that the vehicle came from the Delphos area and was last seen eastbound from the crash scene at 9:25 a.m. The vehicle and driver have not been identified or located at this time.
Fridley was transported from the scene by American Township EMS to St. Rita’s Medical Center.
SR 309 was closed for about an hour and a half in the area of the crash.
Any information about a vehicle matching the description can be forwarded to the Lima Patrol Post at 419-228-2421.
