MARION, Ohio (AP) — Highway patrol investigators believe a hit-skip vehicle may have led to a fatal Ohio motorcycle crash.

The patrol says 20-year-old Jacob Cannon, of Marion, died early Thursday when he lost control of the bike and overturned.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says a preliminary review of evidence indicates Cannon may have been struck by a vehicle that fled the scene.

The patrol says damage on the vehicle would be contained to the front. An investigation continues.
