A Moon Area Middle School teacher was killed Sunday in an Ohio car crash.
Michael Walter, 34, an eighth-grade science teacher at Moon, and his passenger, Carie Ann Harris, 33, were killed at 11 a.m. Sunday after a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Route 45 and Route 165 in Salem, according to WYTV in Youngstown.
The Ohio State Patrol said that as the pair's minivan proceeded from a stop sign on Route 165 it was struck by an oncoming tractor-trailer. Both Walter and Harris were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
Walter was a resident of Beaver Falls.
