TOWNSEND TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Troopers found two stop signs in the back of a truck after the driver was killed in a two-vehicle crash on Monday.
Tyller A. Myers, 19, of Norwalk, didn’t stop at a stop sign and hit a Peterbilt tractor pulling a tanker on US Route 20 at Medusa Road in Townsend Township, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said. Both Myers’ truck and the tractor went off the roadway and ended up in a corn field.
Troopers said Myers was pronounced dead at the scene. The 53-year-old driver of the tractor was taken by Life Flight to Mercy St. Vincent Hospital in Toledo. The highway patrol said his injuries were not life-threatening.
During the investigation, troopers at the scene found three stop signs still attached to poles in Myers’ truck bed. According to the patrol, they also found the intersections where the stop signs were removed, just north of where the accident happened.
Two signs were removed state Route 61 and Wells Road, and another was taken from Route 61 and Gibbs.
