According to Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers investigating the wreck, Robert Mahan, 39, of Mansfield, was driving a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer west on U.S. 20 at 2:25 p.m. Sunday. At the same time Harry Shaw, 70, of Norwalk, was traveling north on Halfway Road in a 2002 Chevy Impala.

Shaw stopped at the stop sign at the intersection with U.S. 20, troopers said, but then continued traveling north across U.S. 20, striking the Trailblazer in the driver's side.
