DETAILS:     On Tuesday, November 4, 2008, at approximately 3:09 p.m. the Allen County Sheriff’s Department received a call that a traffic crash had just occurred at the intersection Leesburg road and O’Day Road.  Upon the officers’ arrival, it was determined that a Silver Dodge Ram Pick-up truck, driven by Ronald E. Smith, was traveling east on Leesburg road when it was struck in the side by a Blue Chevrolet Malibu that was traveling south on O’Day road.  The Pick-up truck lost control and flipped several times ejecting both the driver and passenger.  Nancy L. Smith who was a passenger in the truck died at the scene and Ronald E. Smith was flown by Lutheran Air to Parkview Main Hospital in critical condition where he later died.  The driver of the Chevrolet Malibu did not sustain any serious injuries.  The accident remains under investigations by the Allen County Sheriff’s Department, The Allen County Fact Team, and the Allen County Coroners Office.
