Fairfield Fatal Accident 

There was a deadly crash in Fairfield Wednesday when a car collided with a truck. It happened just before noon at the intersection of 201 and 23: also called the Ohio Hill Road. That section of road was shut down for a couple hours as Fairfield and state police investigated. Police say it appears that the driver of the car, 24-year-old Tara Hart did not stop at the stop sign and that the driver of the truck was unable to avoid her. Hart died at the scene. The truck driver was not injured. Tara Hart was the mother of one-month-old Micah Hart of Oakland who was recently taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The boy’s father, Zachery Hart, is accused of dropping the infant on the floor. He was arrested, and was released on bail.
