Twinsburg — Twinsburg police, along with the Summit County Medical Examiner’s office, are investigating the death of a Ravenna man after an accident in Twinsburg last month.
Michael Hull, 48, died Sept. 30 apparently due to injuries from a motorcycle incident on Interstate 480 in Twinsburg Sept. 15.

Twinsburg Police Lt. Michael Nakata said Hull was thrown from his motorcycle while traveling westbound on I-480 at about 10:26 p.m. after striking a homemade trailer that had separated from the vehicle that was towing it.

Hull was flown to Akron City Hospital and died from multiple injuries at 3:08 p.m. Sept. 30.
Nakata said the vehicle hauling the trailer kept traveling westbound and has not been identified or found. The trailer has been towed.

“It is unknown if the driver realized what happened,” he said.
Gary Guenther, investigator supervisor for the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office, said a ruling has not yet been made on Hull’s death.

“We will have to obtain medical records from the hospital as well as police reports,” Guenther said. “The time it takes to make a ruling will depend on how quickly we can obtain those.”
Nakata said anyone with information that could assist police with this investigation should call 330-425-1234.
