Local News

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Video from one of Warren’s new security cameras shows a vehicle plowing into four other cars at a busy intersection on Thursday night.

One man, 34-year-old Anthony Blackwell, was killed in the crash. Others were injured. 

Investigators say the driver, 31-year-old Joseph Myers, led them on a chase, which officers ended when they reached South Street, near Market Street.

A short time later, Myers crashed at the intersection of Parkman Road and W. Market Street, according to police. 

He faces several charges, including aggravated vehicular homicide. 

The video shows a car traveling at a high speed into traffic. The force of the crash throws other vehicles to the side.

The security camera was stationed at Tod Avenue. It was part of cameras installed earlier this year for use by law enforcement and to help community members feel safer.
