Mansfield Division of Police are Investigating  Fatal Crash


The Mansfield Division of Police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred earlier today at 5:37 PM, at the intersection of S. Main Street and W. 1st St.

 

The crash involved a 2016 Freightliner Tractor with attached trailer which was traveling southbound on S. Main St and a single male operating a bicycle which was traveling eastbound on W 1st St. Preliminary investigation indicates the bicycle traveled through a red light and into the path of the tractor trailer which then struck the bicycle and its operator.

 

The operator of the bicycle, a 29 year-old male, was transported to a local hospital by the Mansfield Fire Department where he succumbed to his injuries. The driver of the tractor trailer, a 48 year-old male, suffered no injuries but was transported to a local hospital for evaluation.

 

A Crash Reconstructionist from the Mansfield Police Traffic Section responded on scene, assisted by the Mansfield Police Department’s Un-manned Aerial System (UAS/DRONE) and the Commercial Motor Vehicle Unit of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

 

Additional information may be released at a later date. We ask that anyone with information related to the crash contact Sgt. Lumadue of the Mansfield Police Department Traffic Section at 419-755-9738.
