In Mercer County, it has been reported that a man was killed by an impact with a commercial vehicle. At about a quarter to 5 on Sunday morning, a man named Daniel Leinen (Leenen) was changing a tire on his car when he was hit by a passing semi-tractor trailer which is believed to have killed him instantly. The westbound lane of Interstate 80 was closed near the Grove City Exit from the moment authorities arrived until about noon while they investigated and cleared the scene of the grisly incident.
