FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WYTV) – Southern Local High School graduate Marcus K. Walter, 19, of Summitville, died in a head-on collision Thursday afternoon on state Route 164 in Fairfield Township, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Walter was on his way to Firestone Park in Columbiana for the final practice and team steak fry before Friday’s Penn-Ohio Stateline Football Classic when the crash occurred around 5 p.m., according to our print partner, the Lisbon Morning Journal.
