Investigators said Arissa Grossman, 52, of Akron was at the wheel of a Dodge Journey, eastbound on Fulton County Division Road. She stopped at Indiana 19 and began a turn north onto that state road. Her vehicle was hit in the driver's side by a motorcycle driven by Witmer, who had been headed south on Indiana 19. Witmer was thrown from the motorcycle in the crash.
State Police said that even though Witmer was wearing a helmet, he died from the head injuries caused by the impact.
Grossman was unhurt in the wreck, but she was cited for failing to yield to cross traffic.
