A Bellevue man died and a New London man was injured this morning in a two-vehicle crash on Fitchville River Road at the intersection of Prospect Road in Fitchville Township.

Scott A. Shuker, 27, of Bellevue, sustained fatal injuries as a result of the crash, said troopers with the Norwalk post of the state Highway Patrol.

Tyler Keathley, 21, of New London, was driving a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix east on Prospect Road at 9:01 a.m. when he failed to stop at the stop sign at Fitchville River Road and struck the southbound 1997 Pontiac Grand Am being driven by Shuker, troopers said.

Both vehicles came to a rest at the southeast corner of the intersection, with Shuker’s vehicle landing on its top, troopers said.

Shuker, who had been wearing his safety belt, was pronounced dead at the scene. His body was transported to Eastman Funeral Home in New London.

Keathley, who also was wearing his safety belt, sustained non-incapacitating injuries, troopers said. He was treated at the scene and released.

There is no indication of alcohol or drug involvement, troopers said, adding the weather wasn’t a factor.

The following agencies assisted at the scene: North Central EMS, the Huron County Sheriff’s Office, Toledo St. Vincent’s LifeFlight and the New London Fire Department.

The crash remains under investigation, and charges are pending, troopers said.

That's irrevelant now. Really, what was the point of that?

williamsnta

This is not necessary. His family is already grieving. You did not need to post this.

factnotfiction

I understand where your coming from and I'm sure the family is grieving but the person posting it has the right too. I agree with u though the point they are makin is rather harsh and inconsiderate.

DanielHolida

What a low-life thing to do. What, he got caught committing a few crimes so this person's death at 27 should be discounted as a terrible accident and a sad story??

JACKEL

How can you possibly have personal attacks with a sad story like this !

Linedriver

M...w...k its people like you who make life harder for people who are in need of prayers and thoughts...I hope karma doesn't find its way to you for your actions.

Cliff Cannon

@ Linedriver : " ...I hope karma doesn't find its way to you for your actions. " I assure, bad karma has already found " M..w..k " After all is not 'society' merely a mirror of your character ?

So can you imagine how tough life must be for a miserable hating person, who could careless, that parents lost a son or his brothers lost a brother or his child lost a father or his grandparents, aunt, uncles & cousins lost a boy they watched grow and loved so ?

Personally, I will add ' M..w..k " to my prayers, because not only have the Shukers lost a soul, they treasured. 'M..w..k ' lives life with out a soul and it makes me wonder who hurts worse.

JACKEL

They obviously need it !

My deepest sympathy to his family. This is such a tragedy - I was in shock when I read it.

I do not know either men but I do know m...w...k... only God can judge and both these families are going through hard times. Weather Mr. Shuker made some wrong choices in his life or not it is not for you to judge he is still someone son, grandson, brother, father, and friend and they are all mourning. Have some respect.

BEcause someone made a bad choice in life doesnt mean you rub it in face of the family when the person loses there life! Totally uncalled for and childish and to the 1 who posted it remember karmas a bi-ch.

The saddest part of all of this is his two young sons will never know what a wonderful person their father was!!!! Will the shallow and self-centered people please take a seat in the back and just keep all your worthless comments to yourselves... And maybe just maybe next time you see a person who is down extend them a hand up not a kick to drive them further down.

Didn't know the road? I guess he doesn't know what a stop sign is either?! Look I live where this accident happened, people speed down prospect and blow the stop sign all the time! Now someone is dead because of it! Wake up people! If I had drove to the market yesterday morning, that could have been my children and I............

Agree Lynn, we need more of a Sheriff presence on the roads used to by pass the bridge, they are all screaming down the roads to make up time for having to go around. We have had an influx of flying traffic, including semi's, large Pepsi truck etc Please, please Sheriff Howard Dane additional coverage for the Summer on these back roads.

Didn't mean any disrespect. Running a stop sign is careless driving. And with that in mind. The life of a young man has ended. Putting no blame on anyone. It is tragic to all that are affected by it. I'll go with he lives in New London! The bridge is closed in Fitchville, prospect rd being the main route between 60 and 250! He knew the road.

You are very correct! But at 21 there is what is known as adult accountability. CARELESS DRIVERS KILL PEOPLE!!!!! SCOTT IS DEAD BECAUSE SOMEONE WAS CARELESS!!!!!!! THATS A FACT.... FIND EVERY EXCUSE YOU CAN!!! STILL WONT CHANGE THE DAMAGE 1 CARELESS PERSON HAS INFLICTED UPON MANY. SAD AS IT MAY BE. Its hard for me to find pity for the careless actions of anyone. Sorry. Go look at the car Scott was driving! Then get back to me with your Pty party attitude..

You must be a very bitter and cynical person. Get a life. Worthless.

Mccullought11

To anyone whom has a negative comment to post keep it to yourself. YOU have no idea what my family or his family is going through. So to m...w...k who gives two shits about karma. What are you saying he deserves this? This is karma coming to get him and leave his two sons fatherless? Get a life and keep your ignorant comments to yourself. Thank you to everyone who has sent their prayers and condolences. They're greatly appreciated.
