A motorcyclist was killed Tuesday after colliding with a pickup truck at intersection of South Old State and Cheshire roads.

David L. Grounds II, 42, of Marion was driving a Harley Davidson motorcycle southbound on South Old State Road around 10:55 a.m. when he ran a stop sign and struck a trailer hitched to a Chevrolet Silverado traveling west on Cheshire Road, said Sgt. Aaron Reimer of the Delaware Ohio State Highway Patrol post.

Grounds, who was wearing a helmet, flew off his vehicle. He was med-flighted to Grant Medical Center in Columbus, where he died. The driver of the pickup truck, a 54 year-old man from Groveport, and his passenger were not harmed.

While investigating the crash, troopers closed the intersection, which is a four-way stop located in Berlin Township, before reopening it around 12:20 p.m.

Alcohol is not considered a factor in the crash, troopers said. The incident remains under investigation.
