OAK HARBOR, Ohio (AP) - The State Highway Patrol says a two-vehicle crash in northwestern Ohio has killed one man and injured two others.
The patrol’s Sandusky post says alcohol is believed to be a factor in the Saturday afternoon crash in Ottawa County.
The patrol says 66-year-old Mark Swift of Oak Harbor was killed when the van he was riding in failed to yield at a stop sign and was struck by a pickup truck. The van overturned, killing Swift, who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. Its driver, 86-year-old James Swift Sr. of Oak Park, was flown to a hospital in Toledo.
The truck driver, 26-year-old Chris Lawley of Oak Harbor, was taken to a hospital in Port Clinton. The severity of Lawley’s and the elder Swift’s injuries weren’t immediately known.
The patrol says charges are pending. The crash remains under investigation.
