According to a release from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the crash happened at approximately 4:22 p.m. Michael Kachurchak, 67, was stopped at the intersection of Westfield and Route 224. After stopping, Kachurchak continued through the intersection heading south on Westfield when his 2002 Nissan Pathfinder was struck by a 2008 Dodge Sprinter van driven by Kevin Cook, 58, of Stow.
