Two people died in a crash involving two semi on Interstate 76 last night.
Akron police report the crash happened eastbound on Interstate 76 near Grant Street when a semi-tractor trailer came to a stop because of traffic.
Lt. Rick Edwards says another semi-tractor trailer failed to control his vehicle and struck the right rear portion of the trailer.
The 40-year-old male driver and a 13-year-old passenger of the second semi died in the crash.
The driver of the first semi was taken to a hospital where his injuries do not appear to be-life threatening.
The identities of the victims are being withheld pending positive identification and family notifications. The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct autopsies today.
