Truck Hauling Sand for Shale Operations Overturns in Fatal Carroll County Crash

From the Times Reporter:
Troopers identified the man as James C. Masterson, 54, of Poland, Ohio. Masterson was pronounced dead at Aultman Hospital in Canton.
Masterson was driving a 2012 Freightliner tractor-trailer southbound at 5:24 p.m. on Route 9, just south of Autumn Road, when he failed to negotiate a right curve and lost control. The tractor-trailer overturned and went off the left side of the road.
At the time, he was hauling 44,000 pounds of sand in conjunction with the oil and gas exploration industry.
The whole article can be viewed here.  The accident is still under investigation.

We extend our sincere condolences to Mr. Masterson's family and friends.
