A Malvern man is dead after a two-vehicle crash on St. Rt. 7 in Belmont County yesterday.
According to Lt. James Faunda of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, a dump truck was traveling southbound on Rt. 7 around 12:04 p.m. when a tire came off the vehicle. The tire bounced over the median and struck a pickup truck traveling northbound on Rt. 7. A passenger of the pickup, Waldo E. Stout of Malvern, 55, died as a result of the injuries sustained in the crash.
The driver of the dump truck was not injured and could face charges.
Crash reconstructionists will use computers to forensically map the scene. OSHP will then forward its report to the prosecutor’s office for review.
