An elderly Norwalk woman died this morning from injuries suffered in a crash last Tuesday.

Ingeborg M. Mackin, 84, 13 Marion Drive, was pronounced dead at 4:35 a.m. today by the Lucas County Coroner’s office in Toledo.

At about 6:25 p.m. last Tuesday, Mackin and her husband, Wallace A. Mackin, 84, were injured in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Mason and Berlin Roads, according to the Sandusky post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Wallace Mackin, the driver, was traveling westbound on Mason Road and failed to stop for a posted stop sign at Berlin Road.  The driver of a 2001 GMC Sierra pickup truck, Ryan C. Westerhold, 23, 5915 Ohio 269, Castalia, collided with the Mackins' car and caused it to spin.  Westerhold was wearing his seat belt and suffered non-incapacitating injuries. He refused treatment at the scene. 

 Wallace Mackin was wearing his seat belt and the vehicle’s driver side air bag deployed in the crash.  He suffered incapacitating injuries and was taken to Fisher-Titus Medical Center in Norwalk by North Central EMS.  Mr. Mackin was driving a 2002 Buick Regal.  The vehicle sustained heavy front-end damage and was towed from the scene by Walt’s Auto Repair of Sandusky.

 Wallace Mackin was cited for failure to yield the right of way from a stop sign.  The crash remains under investigation.
