ODOT installs stop sign with flashing lights after Chardon teens were killed in crash

CHARDON, Ohio -- ODOT installed a stop sign with flashing lights Thursday at the intersection where two Chardon teens were killed in a car crash.

The hope is to reduce crashes in the area where the crash happened -- along Route 44 and Hosford Road.

Investigators say Dominic Ricci, 18, and Jackson Condon, 17, were killed after running a stop sign at the intersection.

Ricci and Condon had both recently graduated from Chardon High School.

There will not be an overhead light installed at this time; according to ODOT, this fall, it will investigate if a traffic light is needed.
