Alexandria Boy Dies After Ohio Crash


According to a report in the Mansfield News Journal (Ohio) Sunday, Alexandria 11-year-old Hunter M. Lewis died at an Ohio hospital from injuries sustained in a crash last Friday.

Riding with his mother, Deborah, his brother, Troy, and his grandparents, Felix and Virginia Roquemore of Mansfield, Lewis was thrown from the vehicle when the car of Andre A. Navedo struck their van, causing it to overturn at an intersection in Shenandoah, Ohio.

Navedo had run a stop sign heading northwest on Ohio Route 603 when he struck the Lewis vehicle at 8:39 p.m., according to the report. Police said that alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
