Truck Roll Back Causes Fatal Accident
On Sunday, May 15, a fatal accident occurred on Clearport Road around 9:12 pm. The crash involved a 1990 International truck and a 2018 Honda Pioneer, leaving the road closed for just over 4 hours, sources say.
The incident occurred when both vehicles were traveling southbound on Clearport Road. The International truck was not able to continue up a hill and began traveling backward, colliding with the Honda. Both vehicles traveled off the left side of the road into a ditch, and the Honda flipped.
The driver of the Honda, 45, was killed on the scene, and the Licking County Coroner was summoned. The driver of the International truck, 44, was not reported to have any injuries. Sources say that a possible cause of the crash was too short the following distance between both vehicles.
