Warren man       killed in crash

WARREN — A Warren man was killed in a one-vehicle crash early Tuesday by the former RG Steel plant on Pine Avenue.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said Charles Kover Jr., 47, was heading north in a pickup truck when he lost control, went off the right side of the road and hit a guardrail just before 3 a.m. The vehicle spun around, and Kover, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected, the patrol said.

Kover initially was taken to Trumbull Memorial Hospital and then was transferred to Pittsburgh, where he later died. The patrol said alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash, which is under investigation.
