The Summit County Medical Examiner and the Akron Police Department are investigating a fatal traffic crash. A two car crash around 7:45 this morning on West Bath Road killed 77-year old Wayne Jones of Cuyahoga Falls.

The circumstances surrounding the accident are under investigation at this time.
Some area public officials and prominent political names will attend the Democratic Party's national convention this September.
The party has named Summit County Democratic Party chairman Wayne Jones, state representatives Vernon Sykes and Kathleen Clyde, and Stow mayor Sara Drew as delegates to the national convention.
The 2012 national Democratic Party convention will be held this year in Charlotte, North Carolina starting September 3.
The four local leaders will join 57 others, in categories including both public officials and at-large selections, as Ohio's representatives at the Democratic National Convention.
Former area congressmember John Boccieri is listed as an at-large alternate.
The Summit County Board of Elections wants to know what's up with a 2-page spread that ran in Saturday's edition of the Akron Beacon Journal.
It's called "City Council News" and features items that mainly tout the accomplishments of the current city council and administration, but stops short of telling people who deserves their vote.
The advertisement does encourage people to vote a certain way on certain issues.
The problem, according to the Summit County Board of Elections, is transparency.
Although the layout looks nothing like that of the Beacon Journal, some people can't tell if it's an advertisement or news. More importantly, the board wants to know who authorized the whole things and who is paying for it.
"Then we can have this information and make a decision on what to do," said Republican Board Member Alex Arshinkoff.
The "information" he's seeking is any documentation that answers the questions.
Arshinkoff made the motion to subpoena records from various city employees. It was seconded by Democrat Wayne Jones and passed unanimously.
"We need to make sure that it was in accordance with what the current rules are and so far as how it was paid for," said Democrat Tim Gorbach.
There is an area at the bottom of the spread that resembles a masthead and it says City Council News is published by Akron City Council and produced by Highland PR.
