A 20-year-old man from Green has died and a 33-year-old man is in the ICU following a crash early Sunday morning involving a snowmobile and an ATV. Authorities with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office say it happened around 2:20 a.m. near 530 Portage Lakes Drive on the West Reservoir.
The Summit County medical examiner confirms that it was Sebastian Spencer, of Green, that lost his life. Spencer used to work at Pick's, a restaurant and bar that sits on Portage Lakes, where his former coworkers are still mourning the news.
"Sebastian was a great kid, I was more like a father figure because I was always yelling at him about something," says owner Don Boyer. "He was just a great kid.”
The news hit Boyer extra hard because he instantly thought of the recent news that Spencer shared with him.
Boyer says, "“He just had a son back in December, which is a tough part. He was very excited.”
Spencer was driving a 2006 Yamaha YFS200 and family of Fred Klemp say he was the 33-year-old man from Coventry Township that was driving a 2005 Arctic Cat on the ice when the vehicles struck each other.
Klemp's cousin, Mitch Klemp, says Fred is doing better and that doctors hope to release him from the ICU by the end of the week.
