Monroe County Sheriff's deputies say Person was riding a motorcycle southbound on Scottsville Road around 9 a.m. Thursday when a pickup truck waiting to make a left hand turn was rear-ended.
The impact forced the pickup into the southbound lane, where it collided with Person. A Newark school bus, which was following the motorcycle at the time, also hit the truck.
No one on the bus was injured.
Person was transported to Strong Hospital where he later died.
The driver of the SUV that rear-ended the pickup said he was distracted by a spilled cup of coffee. He was cited for following too closely.
