The crash occurred at 12:55 a.m. on State Route 18 near mile post 24 in Clarksville Township, Huron County.
55-year-old Raymond J. Orbas Jr., of Medina, Ohio, was driving a 2007 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic motorcycle eastbound on SR 18.
Orbas’ motorcycle failed to negotiate a right curve and traveled off the left side of the roadway, where it overturned and struck a ditch.

Orbas was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Alcohol and/or drugs do not appear to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
