According to troopers, a 2002 Subaru Outback was traveling north on Ohio 4 at about 12:30 p.m. when a 1999 Ford Exploror headed west on Strecker Road ran a stop sign at the intersection. The oncoming Subaru then smashed into the drivers side of the Ford, sending both cars into a field northwest of the intersection.
The driver of the Subaru, Robin Reaves, 40, of Tiffin, was conscious and talking to deputies, who arrived first on the scene. She was later taken by medical helicopter to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo.
The driver of the Ford died at the scene. He has been identified as John M. Klish, 88, of Mansfield.
Troopers do not believe alcohol was involved.
Ohio 4 was closed for several hours following the wreck. Drivers are advised to avoid the area until the wreck is cleared.
