Posted: Updated:

JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Investigators tell 21 News they believe distracted driving may have caused a fatal crash in Jackson Township over the weekend.

Kenneth Stoner, 87, of Newton Falls was pronounced dead Sunday morning. He, along with his wife, 83-year-old Dolores Stoner, were in the backseat of a Toyota Camry that was hit by an SUV.

Dolores Stoner was pronounced dead Saturday shortly after the crash.

The driver and son of the couple, Kenneth D. Stoner, 60 and his wife, Paula Stoner, 60, received minor injuries and are now home recovering.

Police say Lynn Berger, 35, may have reached for a drink when she slammed her SUV into the rear of the Camry with all four inside, just after the Bailey Road exit. The Canfield Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol told Kenneth D. Stoner that construction up head of where they were stopped was the cause of congested traffic at the time.
  
Berger did not receive any medical treatment following the crash.
Charges have not been filed at this time. OSP is finishing its crash investigation  before turning over the crash report to the Mahoning County Prosecutor's office.
