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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Well guess I am NOT the only one that thought you were name calling! And careless and r=wreckless were not the word you and Perkins used!

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.

Aero

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.

He wasn't intoxicated the first time! You all need to get your facts straight.

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?

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.

He's not a very good driver either....

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!

He WAS NOT drinking. Again, you don't know what happened and are running your gator.

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. What you all could do is look up then and than and learn how to use them.
