MONROE TOWNSHIP – A Mansfield man was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Ohio 39 Monday afternoon, Richland County’s second fatal crash in less than 24 hours.

Gregory D. Mayner, 59, was extricated from a 2013 International 4300 flat-bed truck after it overturned but succumbed to his injuries at the scene of the crash, which occurred in the 1800 block of Ohio 39, just west of Lucas, at 3:44 p.m., according to the Ohio Highway Patrol.

Mayner had been traveling northwest on the state route. He drove off the right side of the road and struck an embankment, causing the flatbed truck with two dumpsters to overturn, the patrol said in a news release on Monday evening.
