Grafton Township – A crash on Route 57 in Grafton Township Saturday afternoon left a motorcyclist dead and a baby taken to the hospital.

Chief Bob Richards of the Grafton Township Fire Department said they received the call of a car verses motorcycle around 2 P.M. Saturday. “As soon as we received the call we had Metro LifeFlight put in the air just in case. When we arrived on scene our crews began Advance Life Support, starting an IV and placing him on a Cardiac Monitor. The Monitor indicated a shockable rhythm so we shocked him but his injuries were too severe.”

Richards said that the LifeFlight Doctor pronounced the victim at the scene.

The woman driving the minivan and her infant were transported to Elyria Memorial Hospital only as a precaution according to Chief Richards. “The baby and mother both seemed to be fine, but with the glass that shattered into the vehicle the mom wanted to have the baby looked at in the Emergency Room.” Richards said that the infant was properly restrained in the vehicle at the time of the crash.
Check back Sunday for more details and photos from the scene.
