Sun., 11:15 pm: Austintown woman hurt in Ashland crash
ASHLAND (AP) – An Ohio college campus is mourning the loss of a student killed in a weekend car crash.
Three other Ashland University students were hospitalized in serious condition after their car went through a stop sign and was struck by a pickup truck in Wellington. The Ohio State Highway Patrol said Andrew Keim, of Millersburg, died Saturday at MetroHealth Medical Center after the Friday evening accident. Three other students were hospitalized after being flown to the Cleveland hospital, including Rosalie Sepesy, 21, of Austintown.
Keim’s twin sister Ashley spoke at a Saturday evening prayer service on campus and informed the audience that her brother had died of his injuries. She said he was a giving person in life who would continue to be so as an organ donor. She is also a student at Ashland.
Troopers said Keim was riding in the back seat of a four-door car driven by 20-year-old Madalyn Humphrey, of Elkins, W.Va. She was listed in serious condition Sunday morning, along with another passenger Paige Gorsuch, 21, of Wauseon.
The driver of the pickup truck, Mark Zacharias, 56, of Wellington, was hospitalized in fair condition while Elizabeth Zacharias, 55, had been released from the hospital after treatment. Heimann said they are the parents of a sophomore student at the school.
