Griffin Belden Death – A 21-year-old man has died following a deadly car accident that happened this morning in Streetsboro, Ohio. The victim has been identified as Griffin Belden. According to reports, Griffin Belden, a resident of Kent, Ohio passed away from injuries sustained in the fatal collision. Griffin was the smartest kid many have ever known, but he would never let you say that about him. He was the quiet one, but when he said something, it would be either funny or wise, and it came from a heart as big as the world.
How did the crash happen?
This morning at 8:16, an incident occurred in the vicinity of SR 303 and Kirby Lane involving 21-year-old Griffin Belden from Kent. Griffin was driving his 2013 Kia eastbound on SR 303 when he veered left of center and collided with a westbound semi tractor-trailer. The impact caused Griffin’s Kia to veer off the south side of the road and catch fire.
Fortunately, a Good Samaritan happened to be nearby with a fire extinguisher and managed to put out the fire before it reached Griffin. However, due to the severity of his injuries, the Streetsboro Fire Department had to extricate Griffin from the Kia. He was then rushed to Akron City Hospital in critical condition. Tragically, Griffin later succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.
The driver of the semi was a 61-year-old male from Cleveland who attempted to avoid the collision, but there wasn’t enough time to prevent the accident. As a result of the collision, the semi went off the north side of the road, partially overturning and striking a telephone pole, leading to a power outage and a minor diesel spill. As of now, the crash is still under investigation to determine the exact cause and circumstances that led to this unfortunate incident.
Griffin Belden obituary and funeral arrangements will be announced at a later date by the family.
