A man whose motorcycle collided with a sport utility vehicle in Pleasant Township Saturday afternoon remained in serious condition Monday night.
Richard W. Froelich, 63, of Luckey, first was taken to Mercy Tiffin Hospital by Tiffin Fire Rescue Division and then was taken by Life Flight to Summa Akron City Hospital following the accident on CR 33.
Froelich had been driving a 1984 BMW R100RT northbound on CR 33. A 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Kristopher A. Collins, 28, of Fremont, was southbound on CR 33, started to turn left into a private drive and turned in front of the motorcycle, Trooper Justin Powell of the Fremont post of State Highway Patrol said.
The motorcycle struck the SUV in the side, and Froelich was thrown from it, according to a State Highway Patrol release.
Alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash, it states.
