An Akron man is dead following a two-vehicle crash in New Franklin.
State troopers at the Canton patrol post say it happened about 12:40 p.m. Tuesday when a minivan driven by George Derry, 73, pulled out of a parking lot on Manchester Road and into the path of a panel van driven by William Palmeri, 33, also of Akron. The impact sent Derry's van off the road.
Palmeri and his passenger were not hurt, but Derry was pronounced dead at Baberton City Hospital about 45 minutes after the wreck.
Troopers say Derry was not wearing a safety belt.
The crash is still under investigation.
