A Neapolis man was killed and a Whitehouse woman was hurt yesterday in a car-sport utility vehicle accident on Stiles Road at Heller Road in Whitehouse, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.
Ernest Dotson, 81, the driver of the SUV, who was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene, troopers said.
Sharon Moore, 56, the driver of the car, was treated at St. Luke's Hospital.
Mr. Dotson was westbound on Stiles in a Ford Explorer about 4:55 p.m. when he failed to yield at a stop sign at Heller to a Mercury Cougar driven by Ms. Moore, who was southbound on Heller. The car struck the SUV in the right passenger side, causing it to flip, troopers said.
