BEAVER TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – Columbiana County’s recorder is now facing charges for a fatal crash earlier this week in Beaver Township.
Theresa Bosel is charged with vehicular manslaughter, driving left of center and failure to wear a seat belt, Ohio State Highway Patrol confirms.
The crash on Western Reserve Road took the life of 69-year-old Cecil Chamberlain, of California.
Bosel was driving a 2015 Jeep Wrangler westbound on Western Reserve Road when she hit a 2019 GMC Terrain, driven by 70-year-old Drema Kessel, who was going eastbound. The Wrangler then hit a Ford Fusion, forcing it off the roadway, according to Highway Patrol.
The driver of the Fusion, Chamberlain, was taken to the hospital, where he died.
His 66-year-old passenger was also taken to the hospital with injuries that weren’t life-threatening.
Bosel and Kessel weren’t hurt in the crash, troopers said.
