Fayette man dies in crash


A Fayette man has died in a motorcycle crash in Gorham Township.

The Toledo Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol reports that Christopher Litwiller, 44, was traveling northbound on County Road 20 south of U.S. 20 on Thursday when his 1982 Honda Goldwing went off the left side of the roadway, struck a ditch, and overturned in a field. He was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Alcohol appears to be a factor in the accident, and Litwiller was not wearing a helmet.

Troopers were assisted at the scene by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office and Fulton County EMS.

The accident remains under investigation.
