One person was killed while another was critically injured following a one-vehicle crash in Delaware Township on Sunday, September 29.

Jeffrey Benninghoff, 29, of Fredonia, was driving along Delaware Road at around 8:30 a.m. when he tried to avoid a bicyclist as he approached the intersection to Folk Road. Benninghoff’s vehicle spun around and then hit a utility pole. His passenger, 32-year-old Chandra Kodali, also from Fredonia, was partly ejected from the vehicle.

Benninghoff was flown to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown for treatment of critical injuries, while Kodali was pronounced dead at the scene.
