Carlisle Township – An Avon Firefighter / Paramedic was killed late Monday night after crashing his 2001 Yamaha motorcycle on Indian Hollow Road, south of Butternut Ridge Road.

Trooper AJ Torres of the Ohio State Patrol said that 31 year old Kevin Criss was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics. “Mr. Criss was traveling south on Indian Hollow at a high rate of speed just after 11 p.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve. Mr. Criss went off the right side of the road striking an address sign post and a guard rail. He then traveled down a ravine and struck a utility pole – cutting it in half.” Torres said the Coroner indicated that Criss was killed instantly upon impact.

Criss was on his way home and was familiar with the roadways in that area according to Torres. He said it is possible that an animal had crossed his path prior to him losing control.

My husband was on his way home from work and seen a helmet in the road. We are bikers so he stopped to make sure no one was hurt. That is when he seen the bike and called 911 immediately. Our deepest condolences to Mr. Criss' family. May God wrap his arms of comfort around you & yours. God bless you all.
