Franklin County Sheriff: Alcohol May Be Factor In Metamora Crash

September 30, 2013
By

Police believe alcohol is a factor in a hit-and-run accident that occurred in Metamora over the weekend.

24-year-old Tyler Wilson, of Rushville, was driving a 2000 GMC Jimmy eastbound on U.S. 52 following a 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycle on Saturday around 5:17 p.m.

The motorcycle was driven by Robert Stickleman, 76, of Middletown, Ohio.

When Stickleman slowed down to turn left into the Hearthstone Restaurant, police say Wilson was following too closely and struck the Harley Davidson in the rear end. The bike traveled off the roadway and resulted in Stickleman and his passenger Donna Roberts being thrown from the vehicle.

They were transported to McCullough Hyde Hospital in Oxford for injuries to the neck and spine. Stickleman also suffered an injury to his right arm. Their current conditions have not been released.

Police say Wilson stopped for a short time, then fled the scene by traveling east on U.S. 52. Wilson was located near Cummins Road and taken into custody without incident.

He was arrested and is facing preliminary charges of leaving the scene of an accident and OWI resulting in serious bodily injury. He was booked into the Franklin County Security Center on $5,000 bond.

Police were assisted on the scene by the Metamora Volunteer Fire Department, Brookville EMS 2 and Laurel EMS 3.
