Two motorcyclists are dead following a three vehicle accident Tuesday evening in Tuscarawas County.

The motorcycle was traveling southbound on County Road 64 in Dennison when the operator slow down to make a left-hand turn into a residential driveway.

The person operating a 2018 ram truck, two vehicles behind the motorcycle, went left of center to pass the motorcycle. That is when the truck struck the motorcycle, causing the motorcycle to overturn and slide down the roadway.

Both the operator in the passenger of the motorcycle died at the scene. Neither were wearing helmets.

The identities of the deceased have not been released at this time.
