Man killed when motorcycle collides with SUV


The Canfield Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol says Anthony J. Scarnecchia, 59, of Poland, was killed when his motorcycle collided with an SUV about 9:20 p.m. Wednesday at U.S. Route 224 and Hitchcock Boulevard.

A news release from the patrol says Scarnecchia was traveling east on Route 224 in the right hand lane approaching Hitchcock Boulevard. The SUV, a Jeep Wrangler, was westbound on 224 in the left lane and was trying to turn south on Hitchcock Boulevard when the motorcycle collided with the Jeep as it was turning.

The driver of the Jeep was a 16-year-old female from Youngstown. The patrol would not release her name because she is a juvenile. An 18-year-old passenger was taken by her parents to be treated for injuries at St. Elizabeth Health Center.

Scarnecchia died at St. Elizabeth Health Center about 11 p.m., the release states.

The accident is still under investigation. No charges have been filed.
