Massillon man killed in single-vehicle crash

MOUNT EATON, Ohio - A 52-year-old Massillon man was killed early Friday morning in a single-vehicle crash in Wayne County.

The fatal wreck happened around 1:18 a.m. on State Route 241, just north of the Village of Mount Eaton.

Ohio State Highway Troopers said Samuel P. Hittle, 52, drove his Jeep Liberty SUV off the left side of the roadway, striking several mailboxes and a utility pole.

Hittle died at the scene.

Troopers said the roads were wet, but the weather was not a factor in the crash.

This wreck remains under investigation.

This is the third fatal crash in Wayne County since the beginning of the year, according to troopers.
