Canton Man Dead Following Two-Car Crash
The area of Canton Center and Hanford roads was partially closed for several hours Thursday morning for an investigation of the accident.
A 41-year-old driver died in Canton Thursday morning after he apparently suffered a medical condition, crossed the center lane while southbound on Canton Center Road at Hanford Road and struck another vehicle, police Sgt. Pat Sullivan told the Canton Observer.
The accident happened about 8 a.m. and stopped traffic, according to the article. Canton Police said Canton Center remained partially closed late Thursday morning.
The 41-year-old man was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, the article said.
“We believe his death is due to a medical condition and not the accident,” Sullivan told the Observer. “We don’t believe speed was an issue, and we don’t believe alcohol was a factor with either driver.”
Police had not released the man’s name Thursday morning and were awaiting an autopsy to determine the cause of death, according to the article.
The driver of the second vehicle was treated at the scene by paramedics but declined to be taken to a hospital, the article said.
