Columbia Station – Troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol are investigating a motorcycle crash that claimed the life of a Columbia Station man Saturday night.

Trooper JP Toth of the State Patrol said 43-year-old David A. Dorricott, of South Boone Road in Columbia Station, was riding his motorcycle north on South Station Road when he lost control of the bike. “The bike went off the left side of the road, went across a private driveway then struck a pole and then landed in the front yard.”

The crash site is north of Capel Road and just south of Route 82.

Toth said that it was too early to say if alcohol played a role in the crash. “Speed we can’t determine yet either, we could not find any evasive braking or anything like that – we have been unable to locate the speedometer or any of the devices on the dash of the vehicle, it’s so destroyed.”

Paramedics from Columbia Township Fire & Rescue treated Dorricott at the scene performing CPR and then transported him to Southwest General Hospital where Toth said he was pronounced dead at 8:41 p.m.

Neighbors say that the yard where the crash occurred has seen its share of crashes over the years – including fatal crashes. There are still ruts in the grass near where Dorricott entered the property Saturday from a crash just last week. Township officials say that plans are in place for construction to start next year that will straighten out that portion of South Station Road.

The motorcycle had 30 day tags – the tags are set to expire on June 16th.

Troopers continue to investigate the crash.
