CLEVELAND — A motorist was killed in a vehicular crash on Amity Hill Road in Cleveland on Thursday.

A second motorist in a separate vehicle was transported to an area medical facility with non-life-threatening injuries.

The wreck occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m. in the 2500 block of Amity Hill Road between Cal Kennedy Road and Versailles Road when two vehicles collided going around a sharp turn. The cause of the collision remains under investigation.

Doug Luhn was the first one on the scene. When he saw two vehicles that had apparently wrecked, he called 911.

The victim who has not yet been identified died at the scene.

Bob Houston lives in a residence by the turn and was one of the first people to see the aftermath of the wreck. Houston said it’s not the first time that he has seen a severe wreck take place on the curve by his house. According to Houston, drivers have failed to navigate the sharp curve and ended up in his yard before. Other times collisions have occurred.
