Fatal Crash Claims Life of Brook Park Man

(MEDINA COUNTY) - A fatal crash in Medina County has taken the life of a Brook Park man.

It happened shortly before 11 Thursday morning, when 19-year-old motorcyclist Michael Baron was travelling west on Fenn Road near the intersection of Thomas Lincoln Parkway.

A truck, stopped on the parkway, entered the intersection, causing Baron to take evasive action and losing control of the bike. Baron was ejected from his motorcycle, striking the left front of the truck.  

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the pick-up truck, 38-year-old Robert Schlotman of Cleveland, was not injured.

Baron was said to have been wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Though alcohol and drugs are not believed to be factors in the incident, it remains under investigation.
