The 20-year-old who was killed in a motorcycle crash on Kenton Street was going nearly 100 mph, according to a crash report filed by the Springfield Police Division.

Another caller, who identified himself to this news organization as Eli West, called 911 after he heard a loud crash outside his house.
He tells the dispatcher the accident is “pretty bad” and “there’s a guy down.” West says there was an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper in the area who tried to give Brewer CPR, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash report also revealed that Brewer was riding the motorcycle without a valid driver’s license. The cause of the accident is still under investigation, according to the report.
Funeral services for Brewer are planned for Thursday. A gathering of family and friends will be from 5 to 8 p.m. at Jones-Kenney-Zechman Funeral Home with the service to follow.
