According to Butler-based State Police, this crash took place around 4:08 p.m. on Tuesday, September 26, on State Route 68 (N. Main Street) in Chicora Borough, Butler County.

Police say 25-year-old Adam E. Burns, of Girard, Ohio, stopped at a legally posted stop sign in his 2023 International MV607 at Route 68’s intersection with E. Slippery Rock Street.

As a result, Claypoole’s motorcycle collided with Burns’ truck.

Claypoole was not using a helmet and suffered suspected serious injuries.
