A Liberty Twp. man has been identified as the victim of a fatal crash involving a motorcycle and two vehicles at Ohio 4 and Millikin Road on Sunday.

Stephen A. Stocks, 42, died of multiple traumatic injuries and his death was ruled an accident following an autopsy, according to the Butler County Coroner’s Office.

An investigation by the Fairfield Twp. Police Dept. shows the motorcycle driver slowed or stopped at the intersection. The driver of a 2005 Toyota Solara was traveling north and struck the bike from behind, which ejected the motorcyclist. A second car — a Kia Soul — also traveling north on Ohio 4 struck the motorcyclist in the roadway.

Paramedics worked to save the motorcycle operator who was declared dead at the scene. He was not wearing a helmet, Fairfield Twp. police said.

The driver of the Solara is a 35-year-old man from Hamilton and the driver of the Kia Soul is a 32-year-old man, also from Hamilton. No other IDs have been released.

The incident remains under investigation. Police ask if anyone witnessed the crash to call (513) 785-1463.
