A Youngstown man was killed in a car crash this morning in Ravenna.
Troopers with the State Highway Patrol say it happened at the intersection State Route 14 near Route 5 shortly after 6:30 a.m.
Troopers say Anthony Rodriquez, 21, of Mantua, lost control of his SUV, slid left of center and hit a car driven by 52-year-old Lawrence Santangelo.
Santangelo was taken to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries. Rodriguez was treated and released at a local hospital.
The crash remains under investigation. No charges have been filed at this time.
An earthquake in the Youngstown area Saturday afternoon is being linked to an wastewater injection well near a fault line.
The Youngstown Vindicator reports that the state of Ohio has banned injection wells within five miles of a Youngstown well suspected of causing 11 earthquakes this year.
Officials from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources say there could be more earthquakes in the coming days and weeks due to underground brine pressure, which will take time to subside.
The ODNR says that the controversial practice of "fracking" - used to extract gas from underground shale - is not directly causing the quakes.
But the wastewater that's been injected in Youngstown is a byproduct of the drilling.
The New Year's Eve quake came just one day after a brine-injection well operator - D&L Energy - shut down its Youngstown well after a state order.
The quake's epicenter was originally reported at the small town of McDonald, but the Vindicator reports the epicenter location was later revised to a location near that Youngstown brine-injection well.
The newspaper reports only minor damage in areas near the quake. It was felt Saturday by many in the Akron area, in much of Northern Ohio and beyond, as far north as Buffalo, New York and nearby Canada.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports an earthquake took place at just after 3 PM Saturday afternoon.
The U.S.G.S. earthquake monitoring website says the quake, preliminarily measured at 4.0 on the Richter scale, was centered about 5 miles northwest of Youngstown near the town of McDonald.
It happened at just before 3:05 PM, and U.S.G.S. measurements put it about 1.4 miles deep.
Earthquake expert Thomas Schmidlin, a geography professor at Kent State University, tells AkronNewsNow.com that quakes are common in Northeast Ohio.
But he says as far as he's concerned, the "jury's out" on questions about the controversial gas well drilling procedure known as "fracking" causing larger quakes.
Schmidlin says any quakes caused by disturbance of the ground surface would probably be very small, and not likely to be detected.

There aren't yet any reports of damage or injuries in the quake, which was felt by many in the Akron area and elsewhere in Northeast Ohio.
