A deadly weekend on Crawford County roadways.

Three people killed in two separate accidents. Both along Ohio 598, and both, according to investigators, involving failure to stop at a stop sign.

Paul Houk, of Bucyrus, died Saturday afternoon, when a car failed to stop at 598 and County Road 330, and struck his vehicle.

The second accident, Sunday afternoon, and just a few miles north, killed an elderly couple from Ashland.

Delbert and Adie Gayheart died when investigators say a tractor trailer failed to stop on 598, at Ohio 39. The Gayhearts were killed on impact, when they drove their car into and under the truck's trailer.

The sheriff's office says neither at-fault driver has been charged.

 The fatal accidents brings a total number of six people killed in traffic related accidents in Crawford County this year.
