CELINA — An Indiana man was killed Tuesday in a traffic crash when the driver of a tractor-trailer failed to stop at a stop sign.
Ronald Albers, 56, of Portland, Ind., was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at the intersection of state Routes 29 and 118, Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey said.
The crash was reported at 6:08 a.m. Albers was driving a car east on state Route 29 and collided with a southbound tractor-trailer on state Route 118 that failed to stop at a stop sign, Grey said.
Robert Riley, 54, of Fort Jennings, was the driver of the semi. After Albers’ vehicle collided with the semi, it continued and struck a Toyota truck stopped at the stop sign at Burkettsvile-St. Henry Road driven by Abraham Timmerman, 39, of Fort Recovery, Grey said.
Timmerman was not injured and Riley was not seriously hurt, Grey said.
