A well-known Akron-area stunt motorcyclist has been charged with two felonies stemming from a high-speed crash last month that injured two people.
Kevin Marino, 42, of New Franklin, a co-founder of the StarBoyz stunt motorcycle group, appeared in Akron Municipal Court on Thursday.
He is charged with two counts of aggravated vehicular assault and single counts of reckless driving, speeding and failure to control.
He was released after posting 10 percent of a $20,000 bond.
Police said Marino was driving a 2007 Ford F-250 pickup truck east on East Waterloo Road at about 11 p.m. on March 9 when the vehicle went left of center and collided with a sedan driven by Allison Carter, 23, of Green.
The collision caused the pickup truck to roll on its side and strike a fence and sign. The Green woman was taken to Akron General Medical Center for a concussion, police said.
Police said Ryan Eldridge, 24, a passenger in Marino’s truck, had to have his arm amputated after he was partially ejected from the pickup.
Court records show Marino has a long history of driving infractions, including driving under the influence, hit-skip, reckless operation and driving with a suspended license.
Marino has six drunken driving arrests since 1990, police said.
