A crash just beyond the Market Street Bridge on Route 2 has claimed the life of Manuel Hines of Steubenville.
It happened around 6:30 last night.
A Brooke County Sheriff’s deputy says the crash happened when a unidentified female driver sped out to turn left, northbound toward Weirton when Hines’ motorcycle collided with the car, sending her car spinning and ejecting Hines from his motorcycle onto the pavement. He was wearing a helmet.
The unidentified female driver was taken to Weirton Medical Center for any possible injuries she suffered. Officials said she is likely to be charged in this crash.
