YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A West Middlesex man injured in a Brookfield Township crash on February 24 has died from his injuries, according to the man’s obituary.
Wayne Ayers, 56, died at St. Elizabeth’s Select Specialty Care. He was a tractor-trailer truck driver for Pitt-Ohio.
Ohio State Highway Patrol said Robert Arms, of Tarentum, Pa., was driving northbound in a box truck on Warner Road and had stopped at the intersection of state Route 82. Ayers was traveling westbound on Route 82 in a semi truck, approaching the intersection, when Arms failed to yield and pulled into his path.
Both vehicles traveled off the northwest corner of the intersection. Ayers, Arms and a passenger of the box truck — James George, 41 — were all taken to the hospital following the crash with serious injuries.
Highway Patrol says charges have not yet been filed in relation to the crash, but it is still under investigation.
