On Sunday night, a tragic motorcycle accident took the life of Stephen Stocks, a 42-year-old resident of Liberty Township. The accident occurred at the intersection of Ohio State Route 4 and Millikin Road in Fairfield Township, where Stocks was riding his motorcycle northbound. Around 9:30 p.m., he slowed down or stopped at the intersection, and was rear-ended by a 2005 Toyota Solara that was following him. The impact threw Stocks off his bike, and he was then hit by a 2012 Kia Soul that was also traveling northbound. Stocks was pronounced dead at the scene by the Fairfield Township Police Department, who are investigating the crash.
