A Spencer man died from injuries sustained in a crash Sunday afternoon in Penfield Township.
According to a news release from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Loren Shick, 70, was driving east on Route 18 when his GMC Canyon went off the left side of the road into a field for a reason still unknown to investigators. The vehicle struck a ditch and Shick, who was not wearing a seat belt, suffered head injuries. He was flown by helicopter to MetroHealth Medical Center, and died there shortly before 10 p.m.
The crash is under investigation, but alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors.
