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.

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.

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.

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!

She lost her dad on her mother's birthday.

He did, people like you all with no compassion.

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?

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.

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!

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.

Kelly

What lies?

Oh, if you are law enforcement, may I have your agency? I would like to discuss what reason you would have for doing a history.

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.

soho61: WHO CARES about his record? What is your name and dob so we all can look up your criminal history. A young man lost his life.
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
