A Kenyan man passed away in Allen County, Ohio in a vehicle collision involving two commercial trucks.
Alex Wanjiru, 39, of Whitehall, Pennsylvania, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident that occurred at approximately 4:25pm on Wednesday on US 30 in Allen County, Ohio.
Ohio State Highway Patrol say a semi-tractor-trailer being driven by Mark Meyer was traveling eastbound on US 30 and was trying to make a left run onto a local road when his truck was struck by a box truck being driven by Alex.
