18-year-old Victor Lee DiGiacomo, who was driving the Toyota, died at Wooster Community Hospital after the crash.

DiGiacomo was wearing his safety belts.

7-year-old Elizabeth Starcher, who was in the Mitsubishi with her mother and 6-year-old sister, died at the scene. Both the mother, identified as 26-year-old Abby Starcher, and the 6-year-old girl suffered serious injuries.
