GRANVILLE — A Granville man was killed on Friday in a motorcycle crash.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office received a report just before 3 p.m. of a missing person in the town of Granville. A motorcyclist said he had been riding with a friend, later identified as 63-year-old Lawrence Feola, and lost sight of him.
