BEAVER TOWNSHIP, OHIO — A 69-year-old man was killed Monday morning in a three-vehicle accident.

The Ohio Highway Patrol withheld the man's identity pending notification of family members. The highway patrol is continuing to investigate the accident.

Police said the accident took place about 11:15 a.m. on Western Reserve Road, when a westbound vehicle driven by Theresa Bosel, 48, of Salem, Ohio, struck an eastbound vehicle driven by Drema Kessel, 70, of Salem.

The 69-year-old man was traveling east, behind Kessel's vehicle.

After hitting Kessel's vehicle, Bosel's vehicle hit the 69-year-old man's vehicle, forcing it off the road on the westbound side. Kessel's vehicle stopped just off the westbound side of Western Reserve Road.

Bosel's vehicle came to a stop in the road's westbound lane.

The 69-year-old man was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Elizabeth Boardman Medical Center, according to the highway patrol.

A 66-year-old woman riding as a passenger in the deceased man's vehicle was taken to St. Elizabeth Youngstown with what police said was non-life-threatening injuries.

Salem resident Felecia Detchon, 25, a passenger in Kessel's vehicle, was not injured. Bosel and Kessel also were not injured.

Police said they expect to file charges in the accident.
