JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio — One man is dead and three people are hurt after two trucks slammed into a home in Jackson Township.

It happened shortly after 2 p.m. on US 42 near Route 302.

Video captured by SkyFOX showed heavy smoke pouring out of the home and a semi-truck overturned on the road.

Lt.Monte Morgan with the Ohio State Highway Patrol Massillon Post said a pickup hauling a trailer with construction equipment was traveling east on Route 302, when he failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a semi-truck heading south on US 42.

The force of the crash sent both trucks into a home. The pickup truck driver, 27-year-old Detin Ray Moore of Norwich was pronounced dead at the scene.

A good Samaritan pulled Moore’s two passengers and the driver of the semi-truck to safety.

All three victims were taken to Ashland Samaritan Hospital. They were later life-flighted to MetroHealth Medical Center. 

Kaeleb Ansel, 37, of Cambridge and Mark Hilderbrand Jr., of Freeport are in critical condition.

49-year-old James Dutton, the semi-truck driver of Pennsylvania, is being evaluated at the time of this report.

Lt.Morgan said Gloria Ickes was inside the house and managed to escape with her two miniature Schnauzers before the house burst into flames.

Both Route 302 and US 42 were shut down while crews cleaned up the scene.
