LAKE TWP.: A 16-year-old Lake High School cheerleader and gymnast was killed Tuesday morning in an accident on her way to school, the Stark County Sheriff’s Office said.

Macie Behringer, of Jackson Township, was driving north on Market Avenue when she lost control of her Honda Civic and slid into the southbound lane, where she was hit by a minivan driven by a 29-year-old woman from Uniontown.

The crash happened just south of Lake O’Pines Street Northeast about 8:15 a.m.

Macie, who was not wearing a seatbelt, died at the scene.

The driver of the minivan was treated and released at the scene by Hartville first responders.

The crash remains under investigation, but deputies said they believe speed played a factor. A deputy told a Canton Repository reporter that the roads were slush-covered at the time of the crash.

All athletic events scheduled Tuesday at Lake High School have been postponed.

No makeup dates have yet been announced.
