Troopers investigate fatal Howland one-car crash
Troopers with the Southington Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol are investigating a 1:50 a.m. one-vehicle fatal accident today on North Road, just north of Atlantic Street Northeast.
The driver and only occupant, Antonio Donatelli, 34, of Warren, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Donatelli was driving a 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer, which sustained extensive damage. The vehicle was northbound on North Road and failed to negotiate a curve near Atlantic Street, went off the right side of the road and struck a tree.
Preliminary investigation indicates that speed and alcohol were factors in the crash, the patrol reported.
Also assisting troopers at the scene were Howland Township police and fire departments.
