Motorcyclist dies after crashing into pickup in Mentor

MENTOR, Ohio — A motorcyclist was killed late Tuesday night when his motorcycle crashed into the back of a pickup truck on Ohio 2, police say.

Jameil Spikes, 34, of Carrollton, Ohio, was taken to TriPoint Medical Center in Concord Township following the crash but died of his injuries, according to police. The driver of the pickup truck, an 86-year-old man from Arkansas, was not injured.

At about 9:54 p.m. Tuesday, Spikes was traveling east on Ohio 2, just east of Ohio 615, at a “high rate of speed” on a 2006 Yamaha motorcycle when he crashed into the rear of the 2003 Ford F150, police say.

It’s unknown if drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash. Police are continuing to investigate.
