UPDATE: Child inside home when woman killed

Motorcycle rider hurt in crash at high school


A motorcycle rider has been taken to a hospital by CareFlight after an accident involving a minivan at the Shawnee High School parking lot.

The injuries to the bike rider, identified only as a woman in her 40s or 50s, are not life-threatening, according to Ohio Highway Patrol troopers on scene. Troopers and a rescue unit were dispatched to the scene on Selma Pike just after 5:30 p.m.

According to a preliminary investigation, the woman on the Harley-Davidson lost consciousness for a brief period after she laid down her bike to avoid a collision with a minivan headed south on Selma.

The woman told troopers she was pulling out of the school's parking lot when the incident occurred. She had been there for an event. The school's address is in the 1600 block of East Possum Road. Its parking lot is located on Selma.

The driver of the minivan was not injured, according to troopers at the scene.

Selma was expected to be blocked to traffic at least until about 7:30 p.m. while the investigation continues. The patrol has not established which driver was at fault, troopers said.
