Rothbury man dies in Mason County motorcycle crash.

By Rob Alway, Editor-in-Chief.

LOGAN TOWNSHIP (Mason County) — Devon Newberry Adair, 33, of Rothbury died Friday evening while riding his motorcycle in southeastern Mason County near Ruby Creek. Emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene on Masten Road at 8:31 p.m. between Hawley and Lucek roads. According to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole, Adair was driving a 1995 Yamaha motorcycle southbound on Masten Road when a deer ran into his path.

“It appears Mr. Adair attempted to avoid the deer and in doing so lost control of his motorcycle and crossed the centerline of the road,” Cole said. Adair then drove into the path of a northbound 2003 Toyota Camry, striking it head-on. A 16-year-old male from Milford was operating the Toyota, which also had three occupants, all minors.

Adair was pronounced dead at the scene. None of the occupants of the Toyota were injured.

Emergency units dispatched included Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Carr Area Fire Department, Custer Fire Department, and Life EMS.
