(UPDATED WITH VIDEO) Two people were killed early Sunday morning when a truck crashed into a house near the intersection of Remington and East Perkins avenues.

Emergency responders were called to the scene at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning. The impact of the crash caused the house and the vehicle to burst into flames.

Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. Troopers said additional information would be available soon.

UPDATED 11:11 a.m.

A family member at 1341 E. Perkins Ave. said six people were inside the house when the truck smashed into it. The driver and a passenger in the truck died in the crash, but no one inside the house was hurt.

UPDATED 11:59 a.m.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol has released the following information:

A 1997 F-150 Ford pick-up truck driven west on Perkins Avenue went off the right side of the road, through a yard, and struck a tree.

A male driver, who has not yet been identified, and his passenger, Bradley Vickery, 30, of Bellevue, were thrown from the vehicle by the impact.

The truck then spun into the house. The impact caused both to catch fire.

Sandusky Fire Department transported Vickery to Firelands Regional Medical Center where he later died from his injuries. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene and released to the Erie County Coroner for identification.

Seat belts were not in use at the time of the crash, troopers said. The crash remains under investigation. It's unknown at this time if drugs or alcohol are involved.

I was wondering what all the sirens were for! Thought the zombie apocolypse started already.  Turned the scanner on and heard something about 3 people at the hospital for GSW.  I'm curious what that is all about!

Why would your sick mind want to see pictures of the 2 young men that died in this crash??? This was horrible for for their their families and the family in the home.

Amazing what can happen in a 25mph speed zone.

Good Lord, how  dang fast were they going?  80?

we just came past there on our way home.  The house is a mess, they neighbors are all out cleaning up debris in their driveways and their are cars parked everywhere. 

It is obvious as you drive by, that someone had to be driving WAY over the speed limit to miss that curve.  It appears they hit the tree and bounced into the house.

The picture is of the house, not the dead!!!!.  There is nothing wrong with showing that picture.  Now if they showed the dead, yes, that would be offensive.  Having not yet identifing the driver has nothing to do with showing this house being burned. 

My sympathies to the families of those who died AND to those who survived this nightmare.  I can only imagine what that was like, having seen the aftermath.

THED0N......I have every right to post whatever I see fit, as you do. 

I said I expressed my sympathy to those who losed their lives and to those who are traumatized however...,

 yes.....whoever was driving that car, was going entirely too fast.  It is obvious.  Go out there and see it for yourself.   

My answer was to Creative1 and has nothing whatsoever to do with you.  In defense of the SR, the picture is NOT offensive and I said so.  If you don't like that, I am sorry.  But it isn't. 

Yes, two people died and six are tramatized by the actions of the driver of that vehicle.  I am terribly sorry for the two who died and especially for the six who will have to remember it.  . 

Creative one chose to diss out the SR, by saying that the SR's picture was offensive.  I chose to defend them saying it wasn't.  

You want to come together as a community.  Have people stop their snipping at the only news source we have in this town.  And respect others rights to different points of view and their right to say so. 

vickery_2

really people.... you shouldnt be talking bad about these two men. yes they were driving recklessly but still if that was you who died, you wouldnt want people talking bad about you.

our family is suffering from this tragic loss.

R.I.P Brad

R.I.P Jason

Vickery_2 - yes I agree with you that your family is suffering - however, it was the driver who didn't really care about your suffering when he decided to go wrecklessly speeding around in a deadly weapon without any care in the world - OR - at that time of the night - probably drunk.

Although I feel sorry for their families, it is actually the driver's fault that you are suffering.  People are just making comments on the situation - I haven't seen any direct attacks on the family - in fact, it's been just the opposite.

I realize it is human nature to want to blame someone for this horrific accident..Truly, only God knows why these 2 young men were taken together. My heart hurts for Lori, their mother, I can not imagine having to burry 2 of my sons.  Parents are NEVER suppose to burry their children and I pray that God hold her in his hands to get through all of this pain.   My heart  breaks for Kingston, Brad's son and for Jason's children, they will never have the guidance and love from their fathers and that is truly sad..  Many blessings to all of the family and extended family.

Just went by there and Channel 19 News was interviewing someone standing in the yard.

 

My sympathies to all involved.

I live by the incident and seen everything our heart goes out to the family of the viticms.

I wish we could have done more to save them.

 I went to school with Brad. He was a wonderful person and will be missed greatly by all who knew him...even those that haven't talked to him in years. Prayers go out to the Vickery family for your loss. You will all be in my thoughts during these hard days to come. Jason and Brad will live on in your memories. May they both rest in peace.
