STARK COUNTY, Ohio — The Ohio State Highway Patrol are investigating a fatal crash in Stark County.

The crash happened at 3:30 p.m. on State Route 619 near the Marlboro Avenue NE intersection.

Troopers said Neal Keller, 57, was driving a black 2016 Chevrolet Silverado north on Marlboro Avenue.

Keller failed to stop at the stop sign and traveled off the road, into a parking lot and stuck two parked Marlboro tow trucks, troopers said.

A man was inside one of the tow trucks at the time of the crash.

He was transported to Aultman Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Keller was pronounced dead at the scene.
