Medina man killed in Spieth Road crash

YORK TWP. — A Medina man was killed Monday afternoon in a two-vehicle accident on Spieth Road.

At 5:32 p.m., Steven Schade, 65, of Medina, was driving a 2013 Dodge Dart east on Spieth Road, just east of Abbeyville Road, when he failed to yield the right-of-way when turning north onto Stillwater Drive, according to the Medina post of the Ohio Highway Patrol.

Schade’s car struck a 2009 Toyota Corolla driven by Lawrence Wiggins, 65, of Elyria.

Schade was transported to Medina Hospital where he was pronounced dead, the patrol said.

Wiggins’ condition was not available Monday night.

Schade was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, the patrol said.

The Medina County Sheriff’s Office, Erhart/York Fire and EMS, and Bear’s Towing assisted at the accident scene.

Spieth Road was closed for about 2½ hours.

The crash remains under investigation.
