(11-10-19) On November 10, 2019 at 11:26 a.m. Darke County Sheriff Deputies along with Union City Rescue, Liberty Township Fire Department and Miami Valley Careflight were dispatched to a wooded area near the intersection of Wildcat Road and Palestine Union City Road on a single vehicle injury crash.
Preliminary information revealed that a 2017 Red Beta motorcycle that was ridden by Steven L. Vollmar (48) of West Unity, Ohio, struck a tree while competing in an Enduro Race (a form of mountain bike racing). Other riders came to Vollmar’s aid, in what is believed to be, a short period of time after the accident.
Vollmar was transported to Miami Valley Hospital by Careflight. Deputies learned that Vollmar succumbed to injuries sustained in the accident shortly upon arriving at Miami Valley Hospital.
Investigation is pending
