An Akron man is dead after his car collided with another around 5:30 p.m. on state Route 18 in Bath Township, according to the Ohio Highway Patrol Canton Post.
Lawrence K. Turner was 53 years old.
Patrol Sgt. John Thorne said Turner man was heading west on SR 18 when the other driver, Michael Borchert, 37, of Akron, attempted to make a left turn onto 18 from Hametown Road. The man hit the right rear end of the deceased man's car causing it to flip and come to rest upside down, Thorne said. Both men were driving pickup trucks.
Borchert declined medical treatment. Turner was taken from the scene in an amublance but was later reported dead.
Thorne would not say whether either driver was wearing a seat belt and he was not ready to say who was at fault.
Traffic was snared for about an hour and a half on SR 18, until troopers opened the road again around 7 p.m.
