Man killed after
U.S. Route 22 wreck
BLOOMINGDALE -Brian L. Sullivan, 47, of 316 Garden Drive, Wintersville, was killed when the car he was driving went off U.S. Route 22, near the Broadacre exit, and flipped several times around 3 p.m. Sunday, the Ohio State Highway Patrol reported.
Sullivan was operating a 2012 Dodge Charger west on U.S. Route 22 when the vehicle drove off the left side of the roadway striking a storm drain, the patrol reported. The vehicle then overturned several times before coming to rest on the eastbound side of U.S. Route 22. Sullivan, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle, the patrol reported. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The investigation is continuing, but the patrol reported speed appears to have been a contributing factor in the crash.
Club meets Tuesday
RICHMOND - The Steubenville Saddle Club, which normally meets on the first Tuesday of the month, will meet instead at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the club grounds, state Route 152 north.
President Dale Holcomb will preside for the meeting that is open to members and prospective members who need not own horses to be involved.
The club has one remaining show for the 2014 season, which will be held Aug. 31, beginning at 9 a.m. with halter classes and finishing with a variety of contest classes that do not begin before 3 p.m.
The contest portion of the club's July 13 show was canceled because of inclement weather, officials said, and class money that would have been awarded will be carried over to the Aug. 31 show.
The shows are open to the public. There is no admission, and a variety of food is available in the concession stand.
Membership in the club is open to anyone. An annual membership for a family is $25; $15 for an individual; and $10 for a youth. Checks can be made payable to the Steubenville Saddle Club and mailed to SCC, P.O. Box 431, Richmond, OH 43944, or brought to a meeting.
