PLAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Investigators say alcohol and illegal narcotics are believed to be factors in a deadly crash in Stark County.
It happened around 1:15 a.m. Wednesday on Cleveland Avenue at the intersection of Mt. Pleasant Street.
26-year-old Michael Elsass was pronounced dead at the scene.
Elsass, of North Canton, was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu when he failed to stop at a red light and collided with the front of a 2010 Chrysler Town & Country, according to the Canton post of the Highway Patrol.
Elsass' vehicle went off the right side of the road and struck a group of trees.
Authorities say illegal narcotics were found in Elsass’ vehicle.
Both people inside the Chrysler -- Lawrence and Lynda Dobbins of Hartville -- were not hurt in the crash.
