A 24-year-old Monroe man was killed in a motorcycle crash on Main Street on Monday night and the Monroe Volunteer Fire Department identified him as a firefighter.
Police said Forrest Ryan was driving a 2006 Harley Davidson and going north on Main Street when his bike crossed over the center line near Stanley Road and collided with a 2013 Land Rover around 7 p.m.
Ryan, who was not wearing a helmet, died from injuries sustained in the crash, police said.
He had been a member of the Monroe Volunteer Fire Department since 2009, according to the Monroe Volunteer Fire Department Facebook page.
"Forrest was a hard-working member who always shared a smile and a joke, and would gladly do anything to help a fellow member in need," the fire department's Facebook post says.
Two of the three people in the Land Rover were transported to St Vincent’s Hospital.
Main Street was closed for several hours during the investigation and the Monroe/Trumbull Police Regional Serious Crash Investigation Team was called to investigate.
