TTPD reports that a fatal motorcycle accident has occurred on New Boston Road and taken the life of a local biker, Charles Kissinger, 36, died after colliding with a pick-up truck that had pulled into his path. Our prayers for all involved.
As temperatures warm up more riders will be out on motorcycles and alternative conveyances that will take more effort to be on the lookout for. Look twice and save a life, is the saying.
