Motorcyclist dies after Orange Twp. crash


A 23-year-old Columbus man died Monday from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident in Delaware County’s Orange Township, according to state troopers.

Dead is Michael J. Tung.

The Delaware post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said it is investigating a single-vehicle fatal motorcycle crash that occurred about 2:45 p.m. on Monday on East Powell Road, just east of Colonial Meadows Drive in Orange Township.

Tung was operating a 2006 Kawasaki EX 250 motorcycle eastbound on East Powell Road. The motorcycle went off the right side of the road, and Tung lost control and overturned before coming to final rest, troopers said.

Tung was transported by Delaware County EMS to Mount Carmel St Ann’s Hospital in Westerville with serious injuries. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in the crash, troopers said.

Tung was wearing a motorcycle helmet, they said.

The crash remains under investigation.
