Traffic Crashes Kill Two In Akron Featured

Written by

Akron police are investigating two unrelated fatal traffic crashes which occurred Wednesday, August 2.

The first, which happened about 2:40 PM  on Triplett Boulevard, claimed the life of a 36 year old man who police say may have hit an oil slick and lost control of his motorcycle.

Then, a little after 7:00 PM, a 39 year old man was killed on I-76 westbound near Gilchrist Road and Market Street, when his car rolled down an embankment after he changed lanes, lost control, and crashed into another car. He was not wearing a seatbelt, and was ejected, and died on the scene. 

The driver of the SUV he hit, a 52 year old man, was not injured, and police do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.
