The Ohio State Highway Patrol is currently conducting an investigation into a fatal motorcycle accident that occurred on State Route 800 in Dover Township, Tuscarawas County.

The incident, which took place on the evening of October 8, resulted in the untimely deaths of Cory M. Herron, 42, and Michelle L. Orr, 43, both residents of Dover, Ohio.

According to preliminary reports, Herron was operating a 2003 Harley Davidson Softail Deuce, traveling northbound along State Route 800.
