After completing the stop, Carpenter pulled out into the path of a westbound commercial tractor trailer driven by Dana F. Richmond, 42, of Toledo, and was struck in the driver’s side door. Both vehicles came to rest in the turn lanes of US-20, west of the intersection.

Carpenter was pronounced dead at the scene.
