The crash occurred around 1 p.m. Friday.

A Northwood couple was traveling southbound on Ohio 51 in a Ford pickup truck. The driver of the truck started to cough up blood, causing him to swerve into the other lane, according to Sgt. Eric Short of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
The truck crashed into the Toledo man's oncoming 2005 Chevy.
The driver of the Chevy was ejected from the driver's side of his car and became trapped under his own car where he was pronounced dead at the scene.



What a tragic accident. My heart and prayers go out to the family of the victim and to the other vehicle as well. It seems at the holidays we have so many of these tragic accidents or maybe we have the same as other times of the year it is just so much harder in the holidays. Poor gentleman was only 32 yo so much more of life for him to live.


A seat belt could have saved his life.


He had a seat belt on, part of him was ejected. No need to say more, sad.
