Authorities: motorcycle rider killed in Ohio crash

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Sheriff's officials say a motorcycle rider was killed in a crash and another other vehicle apparently left the scene in central Ohio before authorities arrived.

Local media report that the Franklin County sheriff's office says a person riding the motorcycle died. Authorities were looking for a pickup truck with a trailer that they say may have been involved in the crash near Columbus.

The sheriff's office says the crash occurred Saturday afternoon in the western part of the county.

No further details were immediately available. Sheriff's officials did not immediately return calls seeking comment Saturday.
