Two people died and one person was injured following a two-vehicle crash that occurred late Friday afternoon at Ohio 13 and Chesrown Road.

Lt. Matt Them, commander of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, said a 2003 Acura SUV driven by Greenwich resident Katelynn Myers was traveling westbound on Chesrown Road when the Myers failed to yield at the stop sign and was struck by a van, driven by Mt. Gilead resident Cory Clark, which was traveling southbound on Ohio 13. When the collision happened, both vehicles slid off the southeast corner of the intersection, overturned, and struck a parked car.

The passenger of the Acura, 39-year-old James Walker of Ashland, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the van and another occupant in the Acura were transported to Ohio Health MedCentral Mansfield Hospital.

According to a post dispatcher, Clark was later transported to Grant Medical Center in Columbus with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Acura, Katelynn Myers, was transported to Med-Central Mansfield, where she passed away from her injuries.
