A 72-year-old Hartville man is dead following a two-vehicle accident in Lake Township.

Dead is Harry E. Brent, said the Canton Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The accident occurred about 3:40 p.m. Monday on Swamp Road east of Congress Lake Avenue in northern Stark County.

Brent was driving a 2003 Toyota Tundra and was eastbound on Swamp Road.

Andrew K. Yoder, 31, of Atwater Township, was operating a 2011 Ford F-150 eastbound on Swamp Road in front of Brent, the patrol said.

Brent attempted to pass Yoder and sideswiped Yoder’s vehicle, went off the right side of the road and struck a tree, the patrol said.

Brent was transported by the Hartville Fire Department to Summa Akron City Hospital where he died Tuesday afternoon.

Yoder was not injured, the patrol said.

The investigation is continuing.
