2 killed in separate crashes

        Two men were killed in separate traffic crashes this weekend in Cincinnati — one driving without a seat belt, the other riding a motorcycle without a helmet.

        Craig Broadnax, 31, of Forest Park, was driving alone south on Interstate 75 at 2:22 a.m. Sunday when he failed to negotiate the exit ramp onto Harrison Avenue, Cincinnati police reported.

        Mr. Broadnax's vehicle struck a guard rail and overturned. Because he was not wearing a seat belt, he was partially ejected, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

        Three hours earlier, Michael Griffith, 23, of Cincinnati's East End, was killed when he lost control of his motorcycle on Eastern Avenue and struck a curb and a retaining wall, police said.

        The crash occurred at 10:58 p.m. Saturday near Eastern Avenue and Vance Street. Mr. Griffith was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said they think the crash was alcohol-related.
