A man was killed and two women are injured in an auto-pedestrian accident that happened Monday morning on West Fourth Street at Western Avenue in Mansfield.

Police say 44 year old Latrese Whack was walking in the street when she was hit from behind by a Pontiac Sunfire driven by Mansfield resident, Amber Harris.

44 year old Roger Rush and another passerby, Jennifer Green came to Whack's aid and were pulling her out of the street when a Pontiac Grand AM driven by 37 year old Angela Edwards lost control on the slick road and slid into them.

Rush was trapped under Edwards' car and was taken to the hospital where he died from his injuries.

Sgt. Ken Carroll says Whack was walking in the street because the sidewalks are buried in snow. He urges residents to keep sidewalks in front of their homes and businesses clear, so pedestrians aren't forced to walk in the roadways.

Whack and Green were taken to OhioHealth MedCentral and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The crash remains under investigation with assistance from the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
