Sheriff Lutz: speed likely a factor in Sunday's accident

ZANESVILLE, Ohio -- Authorities in Muskingum County are investigating a fatal motorcycle accident that took place on Sunday night.

The Muskingum County Sheriffs Office received a call just after 8:00 p.m. concerning an accident on Frazeysburg Road. The driver, 27-year-old Jayjuan Sherrell of Zanesville, was pronounced dead at the scene while a passenger on the bike, 19-year-old Mariah Swingle of Zanesville, suffered serious injures in the crash.
