Elyria Township – A motorcyclist was flown from Elyria Township late Saturday night after he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed on Route 57 near Griswold Road.

One witness told Troopers and Elyria Police he had been following the bikes since the Huron area and said they were driving just fine – no speeding or weaving and always using signals.

Once the motorcyclist exited Route 2 onto Route 57 something happened to cause him to lose control. One driver following behind speculates he might have hit loose gravel along near the side of the road.

After the crash witnesses rushed to the man’s aid and found him without a pulse. A nurse who was about two cars back performed CPR on the man and was able to get a pulse.

Elyria Township Firefighters, with the assistance of LifeCare Paramedics and Elyria Firefighters, treated the man on the scene before taking him to an awaiting helicopter in a nearby field. The helicopter medical crew worked on the victim for nearly 30 minutes before flying him to Cleveland.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating what caused the man to lose control of his bike.
