Weekend Crash Proves Fatal

The win­ter weather has left one per­son dead fol­low­ing a crash in our area.

Blow­ing and drift­ing snow Sat­ur­day morn­ing resulted in a chain-reaction crash on Ohio 576, between County Road H and County Road I. Then, about an hour later, just before 11:30 Sat­ur­day morn­ing, a crash on the Ohio Turn­pike hap­pened in which one per­son was killed.

67 year old San­toxh Misra of Stow, Ohio was dri­ving a car east on the turn­pike when that vehi­cle col­lided with a com­mer­cial truck that was stopped because of another crash, and then hit again by another com­mer­cial vehi­cle.

A pas­sen­ger in the Misra vehi­cle, 56 year old Mar­garet Misra, was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

San­tosh Misra was taken to St. Vincent’s Mercy Cen­ter by ambu­lance. Police say seat­belts were in use, alco­hol was not a fac­tor. They say the road con­di­tions at the time are most likely the cause of that fatal crash, which remains under investigation.
