The Ohio State Highway Patrol confirms that 33-year-old Matthew Spencer of Kingsland, Arkansas, was killed in the crash after his motorcycle collided with another vehicle on U.S Route 250 just after 3 p.m.

Spencer was traveling westbound on 250 when he crossed over the white edge line and struck a vehicle that was in a driveway, waiting to turn onto U.S 250. Spencer was ejected from the motorcycle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Traffic was backed up for an hour while emergency crews cleared the scene.

Troopers say Spencer was not wearing a helmet. The driver of the other vehicle was uninjured.
