A man from Louisville has died following an accident involving a semi on US 62 at California Ave Friday morning at 10:55.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Vishavpal Singh, a 22-year-old resident of Jamacia, New York, was operating a 2022 Freightliner Cascadia commercial semi-tractor, towing an enclosed cargo trailer, traveling eastbound on US Route 62. Christopher Lee Brogan, a 36-year-old from Louisville, Ohio, was driving a 1994 Honda Civic heading north on California Avenue, approaching the intersection with US Route 62.

Both vehicles entered the intersection simultaneously, resulting in a collision between the Freightliner and the Honda Civic. Following the impact, the Honda Civic veered off the roadway and struck a traffic sign in the median of US Route 62.

Brogan was transported to Cleveland Clinic Mercy Hospital with life threatening injuries and later died at 6:10 p.m.

Assisting the Ohio State Highway Patrol at the crash site were the Louisville Police Department, Ohio Department of Transportation, Nimishillen Township Fire Department, and Canton Towing.

Authorities have ruled out alcohol and drug use as contributing factors to the crash. The investigation into the incident is ongoing, and further details are yet to be determined.
