LEBANON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly collision between a motorcycle and a car in Warren County Tuesday night.
Jeffery Stewart, 51, of Mason, Ohio, was killed when his motorcycle slammed into the rear end of a car on Butler-Warren Road in Deerfield Township at about 11:00.
