A 68-year-old woman died Tuesday night in motorcycle crash in the Village of Millville.

Cynthia A. Massey of Fairfield died of head trauma, according to the Butler County Coroner’s Office. Her death was ruled an accident.

At about 8:48 p.m., deputies responded to the intersection of U.S. 27 and Ross Hanover Road for a crash involving a motorcycle and a car, according to the Butler County Sheriff’s Office.

The motorcycle was making a right turn onto U.S. 27 from Ross Hanover Road when it crossed the double yellow center line and struck a southbound vehicle. Massey, who was driving, was thrown from the motorcycle.

Witnesses started CPR at the scene until medics arrived. Despite lifesaving measures, Massey was pronounced dead at the scene. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors in the crash.

The crash is still under investigation by the Serious Traffic Accident Reconstruction Team.
