GORHAM TOWNSHIP - A Toledo man was killed and one from McClure suffered minor injuries after crashing their motorcycles in Fulton County Thursday night.

The Toledo Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol reports Michael Vanbarg, 69, McClure, and Robert Adlington, 68, Toledo, were each traveling east on U.S. 20 in Gorham Township on separate motorcycles.

Both men went off the right side of the road, struck a ditch and were ejected from their motorcycles. Neither was wearing a helmet.

Adlington was transported by air ambulance to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Toledo, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Vanbarg was transported to Fulton County Health Center, where he was treated and released with minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation, and the post reported alcohol is a contributing factor in the crash.
