An 84-year-old woman is dead following a fiery, 3-vehicle crash in Huntsburg Township. The Chardon Post of the Ohio Highway Patrol is handling that investigation. The vehicles collided Tuesday afternoon along US 322 at Princeton Road in Geauga County.

According to the state patrol, Joanne Grogan failed to stop at a stop sign and struck the side of a truck that was passing through that intersection. The impact of the crash forced both vehicles to collide with a Ford truck that was also approaching Princeton Road. All the vehicles were engulfed in flames.

The Chardon Highway Patrol Post states that Grogan was pronounced dead at the scene.  The other two drivers were transported to the hospital. The traffic crash remains under investigation.
