(7-25-22) The Logan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a single-vehicle motorcycle crash that killed a New Hampshire, Ohio, man early Sunday morning in the area of 9974 State Route 117.

Philip E. McNeal (54) was pronounced dead after the 1:29 a.m. crash. He was transported by BMRT EMS to Mary Rutan Hospital.

Deputies report he was operating a northbound motorcycle and traveled off the east side of the road on a curve, sideswiping a utility pole. The vehicle then struck a driveway embankment and crossed another driveway, coming to a rest on its side. McNeal was thrown from the motorcycle.

McNeal was not wearing a helmet, according to the crash report. Neither alcohol nor drugs were suspected as factors in the crash.

Damage was heavy to the motorcycle, which was towed from the scene.

This is the seventh fatal crash in Logan County this year.
