BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) — Market Street was closed between Wilma Avenue and Overhill Road for more than three hours Thursday after two cars collided in the 4100 block, with one taking out a utility pole.
The crash happened about 4 p.m. and the road was reopened about 7:30 p.m.
According to the Canfield Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, both vehicles were heading south on Market Street in different lanes when Christopher Leonardo, 38, of Boardman, swerved to miss a car in the turning lane that was partially in the passing lane. Leonardo’s Cadillac sideswiped a Volvo driven by Nicholas Dianni, 19, also of Boardman.
The impact sent Leonardo’s car off the right side of the road, where it struck a utility pole, bringing the pole down on top of the car and leaving live wires laying on the roadway. Power was knocked out to businesses in the immediate area, including Wendy’s and O’Reilly’s Auto Parts.
No one was injured. The patrol cited Leonardo for an improper lane change.
