One killed in four-car chain reaction crash

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Police say one person is dead following a four-vehicle chain reaction crash Monday afternoon.

The crash occurred at Airport and Reynolds around 5:30 p.m.

Police say all four vehicles were heading eastbound on Airport in the left lane when a Buick Century driven by 58-year-old Kamel Burkett rear-ended a GMC Terrain driven by 46-year-old Juan Padilla.

The crash caused Padilla to rear-end a Ford Fusion driven by 20-year-old Moira Behrman, who then rear-ended a Dodge Dart driven by 71-year-old Donald Jackson.

Burkett was taken to UTMC where he was later pronounced deceased. No one else was injured during the crash.

The crash is under investigation. UTMC doctors believe a medical condition may have lead to the accident.

Airport Highway was closed for about three hours as a result of the crash.
