Motorcycle Fatal
(WOUB) - A Gallipolis woman is dead after a motorcycle accident Sunday on State Route 7 in Gallia County.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says 47-year old Mary Jo Blair was a passenger on a bike driven by James Plants, when a deer jumped in front of the motorcycle just north of Crown City around eight Sunday night.

The motorcycle hit the deer and then slammed into a guard rail killing Blair.

Plants was incapacitated and transported to St. Mary's Hospital in Huntington.

The patrol says neither Plants or Blair were wearing helmets.
