It's not clear what time the crash happened, but law enforcement personnel were called to the scene after it was discovered at about 7:30 a.m. at Old Railroad Road near Miller Road.

Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers investigating the wreck said Timothy W. Wright Jr., 34, was driving a 2004 Infinity I35 south on Old Railroad Road approaching the T-intersection with Miller Road when he failed to stop at the posted stop sign.

Wright crossed Miller Road, then went airborne for about 100 feet, striking an overhead branch on a small tree and landing in the yard of a private residence. The car continued south through the yard and through a creek before striking a tree.

Wright was not wearing a seat belt. The driver's side air bag deployed in the crash but the front air bag did not, troopers said.

Wright's body was taken to Ransom Funeral Home in Castalia. His vehicle was towing to Moore's Body Shop in Castalia.

The crash remains under investigation.

So sorry to hear this. Can't quite figure out how the car can be airborne, land in a private yard and no one hear it. However, may all involved find peace.

I am not sure that it would be common place for an officer to do a 1/4 mile radius search when a $40 mailbox is ran over.

MurderedOutSilverado

i see your point, and absolutely not arguing, just frustrating is all... but didnt have to look but 10 feet to see the tire tracks on the embankment... and his liscense plate laying there... along with other debris from the vehicle.

heaven-leigh

Why would the officer walk that far over a destroyed mailbox?

MurderedOutSilverado

Didn't know 10 feet was THAT far to look... which was where the license plate and other debris was laying. And to say an ATV destroyed that mailbox and drove off is absurd. IF an ATV had done such damage, that person would be in the hospital and the ATV still there. This mans mailbox was literally destroyed, not just knocked over or dented. I support law enforcement, not bashing them, just wish they'd opened there eyes a little more is all. Simple as that...

Kelly

Not true. Our drunken neighbor destroyed our mailbox twice with his ATV & he was fine and his quad had a tiny dent.

MurderedOutSilverado

Do quads have license plates?

DioVisi

Yes why would we expect an officer called to a "accident" not walk 10 feet and investigate? It must be a common thing on that road for tire marks embedded 5 feet up an embankment, with small tree bent and broken over. If it were to be an atv that creamed his mailbox wouldn't you think that would have caused some serious harm to the rider or atv? I picked up the mailbox what was left of it and also the licence plate NEXT to it. Now in saying all of this it dont change the outcome nor it could have saved him but it could have helped them to find him a lot sooner. The poor couple that let their dog out in the am had to discover Timmy in their backyard has my sympathy. Some things in life happen that will scar you and you can not just forget. The image of a man's tattooed arm hanging out of a wreckage will never go away. RIP Timmy.

This was the guy that hit Ross in his work truck at Bogart Rd.??

Aero

Ross was not hit on Bogart RD. Ross Sr. was hit on old rail road, just over a year ago by this same man

Wow............................................

margaritaville88

Yes, I know the family. Just thought it was at Bogart and Old Railroad intersection....

Try to remember when posting your comments-this man has a family who is grieving. And, family members will read this blog trying to find comfort in our words. Show some compassion, and keep your hateful comments to yourselves. God Bless the family!

Totally missed this while I was typing...thank you for saying this!

ladydye_5

I send my sympathies to the family. But, if I was in this situation, the newspaper comment section would be the LAST place I would be looking for comfort. It would NOT even be on my radar to read the paper, let alone look for comfort in the comments.

Aero

Ladydye_5 I agree someone in grieving over a lost loved one is not going to look to the newspapers for comfort.. They will be looking to their other loved ones for comfort. The comment section in the newspaper would be the LAST place I would even venture to look!

Sadly, many of them will be here. When your lost and in pain, sometimes you find yourself searching for condolences and kind words. These comments have proven in the past to be just the place they come. It's heartbreaking. I don't think I would be here either but I can't say for sure.

heaven-leigh

This forum is for people to express "their thoughts and opinions" People are not here to sugarcoat.

Knuckleheadbuster

I am family and I am here because I loved him and I am watching what stupid people who have no clue about anything are saying to hurt the rest of my family.

MurderedOutSilverado

I appologize of anything ive said has done any hurt.... just frustrated after being there and seeing what i saw with my own eyes and observed after talking with neighbors

margaritaville88

Never said anything bad myself..I do hope the lord consoles the family in this tragedy....God Bless

Aero

I never said anything about the family I do feel bad for his family. I just do not feel bad for him. Thats all

Aero, You should be ashamed. You don't have to have sympathy for Tim. He won't ever read these words, no reason to care for him. HOWEVER< his mother, father, sister, brothers, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends JUST MIGHT! Those are the people whose hearts are broken this very moment. Those are the people who deserve your sympathy. And calling Tim anything is doing an incredible harm to them. Be angry, but be smart! Think before you type. You gain nothing, but give them nothing either.

It is very sad that someone else was hurt last year, however, you have NO idea what you are doing or talking about and sometimes it pays to keep your mouth shut. You don't know facts about last year and oh don't know facts about this year. When you have NEVER broken a traffic law, you can speak. Until then, why don't you let the families (both of them) get though this. He has a little girl.

By the way I have NEVER broke a traffic law. And I have a spotless record. It’s not that hard.. Follow the laws.. that’s all.

Thank you PerkinsBlueStreaks for clearing that up. I apparently did not make that clear in my previous post!

Knuckleheadbuster

For what? Have you never broken a traffic law? I just did a background check, no criminal history. You have NO idea what you are talking about or how this young man suffered and paid for the mistake he made last year. Will you throw the first stone?

kimi43464

Amazing! Well duh, don't ya know it's ok that I go clicking off my mouth about what if and how comes and totally ignore the fact that this man died TODAY!!

Throw your FACTS out later! For now, remember what Gran and Granda had to say...IF YOU CAN'T SAY ANYTHING NICE, THEN DON'T SAY NOTHIN AT ALL!!! Let these people heal before you rub the salt!

heaven-leigh

"If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all" I must have have missed that in the discussion guidelines. In other words if you say how you feel and someone doesn't like it you should not have said it? So those are the rules here? Who knew?

Knuckleheadbuster

The polite, old fashioned rules are "if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all". That is the way things were before the "me" generation.

Aero

Its whatever guess ignore the facts! Just keep living in your little sheltered worlds. I know everyone’s doorstep in not clean. However I can say with a clear conscious that I have never endangered someone else’s life. Go ahead and report my posts. I sure as heck don’t care one bit, call me "insensitive" if you will. However FACTS are quite hard to ignore. Now I do have a life and have to be up for work bright and early. So I must leave yall to live in fairy land.

I for one know him and it is horrible for people to comment in such a negative manner. This man has a wife and kids, and a FAMILY.. Regardless of his past actions or criminal record, he did not deserve to die! Some of you people kill me with the comments on here.. So quick to bring up a criminal record.. IM SURE SOME OF THESE COMMENTERS DO NOT HAVE SQUEEKEY CLEAN RECORDS EITHER.. Do not know the situation of the accident he was involved in before, but as a prior comment stated.. His family will be reading these comments to possibly find comfort or peace and the NEGATIVITY is not going to help them one bit!

Unassumer

Why do you think family members will read this blog to find comfort in your words? I would imagine they are too busy dealing with the arrangements to be bothered for one thing. This is the last place I would go to find comfort regarding anything. Feeling good or bad or trying to say the socially acceptable thing is a waste of time. He's gone to a better place.

WOW! Now I know what some of you mean when moderators have removed your posts. What I said did not contain a personal attack, name calling, presumption of guilt or any of those things. I must have really hit a nerve on someone's part to be removed.

Knuckleheadbuster

This man did not hurt anyone because of drunkenness, will you all just shut up until you know what you are talking about? NONE of you know. You know nothing, but I can assure you this. One day you will answer for your nasty comments and ramblings about something you no nothing about.

entitled to my ...

I do not know the family. But like I said in an earlier post, we can express our opinions, but we need to have COMPASSION for the family and friends who may read this blog. Only God and Mr. Wright know what happened. From what I understand he has a little girl, maybe 6 or 7 years old who just lost her Daddy. I bet from now until Christmas that little girl is going to ask Santa to bring her Daddy back. No matter what led to this crash, it is a tragedy. A young man lost his life, and a little girl lost her Daddy. God Bless the Wright family, and everyone affected by this tragedy!

DioVisi

She lost her dad on her mother's birthday.

Kelly

I didn't personally attack anyone, call anyone names, presume anyone guilty, wasn't insensitive, nor did I pick a fight. I commented on a news article. Why exactly was my post removed?

doratheexplorer

I don't think anyone is being nasty. I think the more you are writing here to the comments you don't like the more they will keep giving them back so you should also "shut up"

Knuckleheadbuster

You don't think false accusations are nasty? And honestly, I can take whatever the knuckleheads dish out! This is mean and uncalled for and if you don't have anything nice to say then you need to be called out.

grandmasgirl

This isn't a space for people to write JUST what you agree with. It is an open forum. If you don't like the remarks, maybe you need to stop reading them. I don't mean to be insensitive, but why do you keep coming back if you don't like what is written.

entitled to my ...

Knuckleheadbuster- Most of the comments posted are from people who don't care about the truth. Things are made up to make the story "juicier" than it is. Try not to let them get to you. You and the rest of the family and friends know the truth. God knows the truth. That's all that really matters. I pray the family will find comfort in knowing Tim is in a much better place! GOD BLESS!

nosey rosey

If you are family members coming here to read comments then you should re-evaluate your life. The last thing you should be worried about is what is being said on a newspaper website about a family member who is dead.

Knuckleheadbuster

Don't talk to me about my life nosey rosey. You, like the others, have NO idea what you are talking about and I am here because my hurt family called and told me about these lies and I am here to try to set it straight and defend my family.

Re Knuckleheadbuster: My advice to you and the rest of the family would be to turn off your computers and quit reading what is being written. I know, believe me, how hard it is not to care what people are saying. However, alot of the people posting don't care about the truth. YOU knew Tim, YOU knew what kind of person he was. All that matters is that YOU loved him. Honor his memory by being the best person that you can be.
And in a few days, the postings will stop, people will move on to other stories. Tim's family, especially his young daughter, will have a much harder time moving on than these moron's who lie on this website.

I travel on Old RR almost everyday. Practically EVERYBODY who travels that road SPEEDS! Please quit spreading hate-there is a family who is grieving. Have some COMPASSION.

Kelly

No, they don't. You might, but not "practically everybody."

heaven-leigh

I don't.

Aero

I have never sped on that road. My husband has never sped on that road therefore your argment is invalad.

Kelly

That is a LONG record!

soho61

@ Kelly , yeah, but apparently, we shouldn't care because he was loved! no kidding, he was loved. Of course, he will be missed. He was likely someones son, father, brother, cousin, dad, uncle etc. You know, you can love someone and still face facts. His family can't possibly be surprised at this outcome. These comments began when someone mentioned his record and a 'friend of the family' said it was all lies.... no, no, it wasn't lies. It just sucked to see it in print.
I wonder who told the grieving family about this discussion... could it be one of you 'close to the family' commenters? Maybe you need to be better friends of the family.
on a personal note- My adult son is reckless. If he should end up in this fashion, I hope my friends comfort me and not defend my son's reckless behaviors or call people liars when they quote courts documents. I love my son, but I am not stupid. I do not need patronized.

Knuckleheadbuster

Not a friend...I am family!

richrs

Ok, so you are family. A tragedy for your family. But not mine. Comfort your family and ignore what is said here. our responses to these postings just fuels the fire and makes you no better, even lower than those posting here. Show you are more mature and stop posting yourself. Otherwise learn to accept the fact that not everyone sees him like you do/did.

wiredmama222

My prayers go out the his family. May God hold him in the palm of His hand for all eternity.

This debris field is extensive. There isn't 100 feet to run between the end of old RR and the wall on Miller. He must have been going pretty fast and manuvered the care to miss that wall. I have no idea what took him airborne unless it is the rocks by that road. Whatever the reason, someone should have heard it but didn't.

We may never know why the trooper didn't do a check when it was dark, but he didn't. Second guess, like I am, is just that, second guessing.

I don't care about his driving record, or why the officer didn't do more. I just know this young man ended up dying for whatever reason.

We all have a shelf life and yet some of us take chances that put that shelf life in a position to move our number up when we should be more careful each and every day.

Either we don't think we are going or we push it because we don't believe.

Whatever the reason, please be careful out there. Take good care of you....there are people you will leave behind who will mourn your passing until it is their time to join you.

Know that whether you realize it or not, they love you and want you here. Don't give them a reason to mourn you too soon.

God Bless this family and help them if you know them. They will need you and your prayers. Praying for them is all I can do as I don't know them personally, but I will pray for them now.

AMEN.....

starryeyes83

People's driving records do matter. Why? Because they are putting you and yours and mine at risk everday.

When have we become so blase about driving records. It's not a right , It's a priviledge.

If this had involved a van full of kids... most of these comments would be very different.

rickross2

This whole comment section is disgusting! This represents a good part of what is wrong with the world today. I weep for my childrens future if this is the mentality of ADULTS. Get a grip. RIP to the deceased.

Knuckleheadbuster

You win, I'm gone. Feel better knuckleheads?

rickross2

Knuckleheadbuster, I feel bad for you and your family. You will never change anyones opinion on here because they are all lawyers, judges, cops, pastors, and MMA fighters when they are posting on here. If they arent willing to give you their real name, than they arent worth your time. Oh yea, I forgot spelling champions too!

betweenlines

Does it seem odd to anyone else that he wasn't reported missing? That could have helped find him sooner.

starryeyes83

Whomever started that line about " god don't like ugly" is full of it. What a worthless cliche, I mean really ...Personally, I would rather someone be brutally honest with me than to sugarcoat or leave me in the dark.

Whatever the reason, it could have been medical, or drunk/ distracted driving. I t could have been a deer... Guess they will say one way or another.

Get one thing straight: This is not a memorial page( that's for the funeral homes to set up) it is a public, open forum, on a public News site.

I do feel bad for the family. but God, get a grip.

heaven-leigh

The SR is going too far with deleting some of our comments. my last one said "We are not here to be therapists, thank God all he destroyed was a mailbox this time and that my daughter and parents travel this road daily. That was deleted due to name calling etc.... How is this? Just because someone clicks "inappropriate"because they don't like someones comment doesn't mean SR should delete it.

Kelly

I totally agree. They removed one of my comments even though I violated no guidelines yet they allow Knucklehadbuster to personally attack people, call them names, and pick fights. Why is that? He is CLEARLY violating the guidelines and has been reported. Play fair REGISTER and remove those posts as well or restore the others. This is a news story not a memorial page. Just because the family doesn't like a comment, that is not a good enough reason to have it removed. If we haven't violated the guidelines, which I didn't, you have no cause to remove them.

Aero

Thank you! I knew I wasent the only one seeing that!

Jackson9

Bottom line is there is a little girl that lost her father that she adores, her mother lost her husband. A mother lost her son. I can't imagine the pain that the family is feeling. RIP Timmy, I hope you are at peace and I hope your family finds peace in the memories and the smile you left with them all.

DriaDria26

The trash that comes out of some of these commenter's mouths are just disgusting. Past generations never acted this way and all of you are no better than any one who has done wrong in the past. Someone can go through their earlier years in life and make mistakes and you all are the first ones to throw the first blow on here. No matter what Tim did he is human everyone makes mistakes, accidents happen that is why they are called accidents.
People who come one here that are near and dear to him and his family may not come on here to find comfort but may pass by because of these cowardice statements you all continue to say about him.
This is an open forum and people are allowed to say whatever is on their minds but do not be spineless and hurt people around you who are grieving. I do not care if you know the parties involved or not just filter and think about what you are saying on here.

starryeyes83

Mouths?? Not on here - this is typed. If you think that people aren't saying the same thing while they are verbally talking amongst themselves in person, you are wrong.

You are very naive. No one is saying he "deserved " to die, but he did have a habit of wreckless driving, did he not?

The burden of proof is on the surviviors. Like I posted before : it could have been medical or a deer or his own fault.

All people have to do is slow down.

SRnewsless

Must not have the been the first time he didn't come home at night if his wife went to work on her birthday morning and didn't even report him missing......

Knuckleheadbuster

Why would you say something like that just to hurt people? What is wrong with you people? Drugs? Bad childhood? Spoiled? What is it that would create little monsters with no feelings at all? Who feel that because you had behind a fictitious name on a website that no one sees you or knows you are doing it? God does and you will one day answer for your mean ways, all of you children.

starryeyes83

Okay, so then according to your OWN theory about God, did your relative answer to God after he hurt someone else? Is that right? Or is it different because it's your relative? Or do your own rules not apply?

Which is it? Because you cannot have it both ways to suit you.

Now then, is knucklehead buster YOUR real name or is it fictitious?

Knuckleheadbuster

It is very apparent that you are angry and hurt over something that happened a year ago. I wonder, have you ever gone over the speed limit? Have you ever ran through a red light. Had a child out of wedlock? Hurt someone's feelings by something you said? Stolen something? Have you ever done anything at all wrong? Have you ever made a mistake? It is not different because he was my family, it is different because he didn't do anything to hurt anyone on purpose as you are doing at this moment. It isn't to suit me. Is his passing not enough for you? Can you not just stop hurting people intentionally? That is the difference since you can't see it. He was hurt, too. He was sad and he suffered greatly for what he did. No, my name isn't what it is here because they dont allow real names, sadly. Because if they did, I would know who to pray for.

starryeyes83

.... No, dear, I don't even know who you people are. Just what has been in the news. I don't live in the area... So you're barking up the wrong tree.

For the record, ( off topic, though, it is) I don't have kids and at 40 something, I'm too old to start, now. And no, I've never stolen anything. What does that have do with your relatives' apparent habit of wreckless driving? YOu have to know that is a possiblilty.

So could it be many other things. For your sake, I hope it is.

I'm just asking questions and you continue to blow smoke. YOu can't stop people from having their own thoughts about things. Especially on a news site.

If you want to pray, pray that all the bad drivers out there don't hurt anybody. Drivers don't have that much control over medical issues or mechanical ones, or say a deer, or headlight glare... But they do when it comes to how fast and how careful they are.

DriaDria26

Why do you even bother if you are not even from the area? I am far from naive, the comments on here are just callus and crazy. He made two mistakes and there was no one else involved and he is the only person who knows what happened this time. Like I said before accidents happen.

starryeyes83

I said I don't live in the area,,, it doesn' t mean I'm not from the area. Hard copy of SR is sold at least in 5 counties that I know of.

It is a news article it's not a memorial page , newpapers are not required to do memorial pages. This is a comment section. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean my point wasn't valid.

luvblues2

Nice try to throw it back on starryeyes, KHB. It doesn't work that way.

Knuckleheadbuster

Throw what back? I am trying to understand and wish one of you all would explain to me and justify continuing to condemn someone who has paid an ultimate price that I am guessing you don't even know! What is the matter with you? Have none of you compassion? I give up. It is obvious at you are all lost, unknowing, simpleminded souls who have no feelings or hearts at all. I will leave is ignorant forum and pray for you all as well as the social medias that allow this ignorant behavior to go on. God help our new country led by the "me" generation who only cares for themselves. See ya, knuckleheads!

starryeyes83

KHB... there's no more simple minded people than those who refuse to remove blinders.

I care about my loved ones, too, But I also know how to take 'em down a peg or two. There is no coddling in my family. I have no illusions about any of them. Or myself, for that matter.

It's called tough love.

tk

knuckleheadbuster is right. I didn't "know" this guy but I sure did know his driving since he drove past my house every day and frankly his driving scared me to death. He didn't just make "a" mistake. It was a continous pattern which was bound to catch up with him eventually. Fortunately, he didn't take someone else's life as well as his own. Apparently, he was part of this "me" generation, as his attitude seemed to be,"This road is mine. Get out of my way".

ASPIREDHEART

As i sit here and read everything that is being posted by everyone we are all missing the point......a MOTHER has to bury her son, a WIFE has to say goodbye to her best friend, and a DAUGHTER has to say goodbye to her father!!!!! We all make mistakes in our lives and we are all not perfect but if we just stepped back and looked at the big picture here there is not rim or reason why everything happens....i pray that everyone involved finds the peace they are looking for in this situation...until you walk in others shoes and have to experience this you have no clue yes can we say he was reckless yes but to keep going on and on about it is a little much in MY OPINION...PLEASE LET THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS GREIVE IN A WAY THEY ONLY KNOW HOW TO!!!!

ragtop66

Mistakes are something one learns not to repeat.

Habits are quite another.

Sounds like this could have been prevented. M aybe kids should make their parents sign a safe driving pledge, too.

As another post stated, some things you can control as a driver some things you can't.
