Second person dies from injuries in I-76 crash

Staff report

NORTH JACKSON — An elderly couple died in a two-car crash on Interstate 76.

Dolores Stoner, 83, and her husband, Kenneth R. Stoner, 87, of Newton Falls were in the back seat of a 2011 Toyota Camry, driven by Kenneth D. Stoner, 60, of Ravenna, their son, with the driver’s wife, Paula, 60, in the front passenger seat, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Canfield post.

The vehicle was stopped in traffic at 3:01 p.m. Saturday on Interstate 76 eastbound, at milepost 59, when it was struck by a 2013 Acura RDX, driven by Lynn M. Berger, 35, of Cranberry, Pa., OSHP said.

Dolores Stoner died from injuries sustained in the crash shortly after arriving at St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown. Her husband died early today.

The three others were injured, but not seriously. The crash remains under investigation.

Ok here is what has happened so far, The Temporary Traffic Control set up was put into place recently, On Saturday The accedent happened resulting in a double fatality. Late last night the Contractor Had his crew out picking up the entire set up even though it is reasonable to say the work has not been completed, which leads any normal person to think either the OSP directed them to pick it up due it being unsafe or set up wrong. Or the contractor wanted his set up pulled before any one could scutinize it. If we know one thing the OSP is very good at disecting accedents, taking good pictures, and extensive documentation of their observations. Not pointing any fingers or trying to blame any one including the Contractor, just what I have seen so far.

I saw the ODOT spokesperson on the local news tonight defending ODOT stating that caution signs were set up one mile before the work area, 1/2 mile before the work area, 3/10 of a mile before the work area, 2/10 of a mile before the work area and yuddah, yuddah, yuddah. With three lanes merging into one in addition to traffic exiting from the Ohio Turnpike, this was the proverbial accident(s) waiting to happen. In such a high risk area, brighter minds should have thought of placing an OSHP car with lights on parked on the side of the interstate. If the state was worried about spending money on a trooper sitting in a car getting paid to not do much, they could have let the car sit with its lights on with no one in it. It would have caught drivers attention and made them slow down more than signs posted every 1/4 mile. Two dead who should have been enjoying their golden years because of poor planning by the state. They are of the same ilk of the geniuses in the federal government who were going to allow small knives to be permitted back on to commercial flights but were thankfully recently overruled.
