The preliminary investigation indicates that at approximately 7:15 a.m. on 10-30-2010, a silver Ford F-150 driven by the victim was traveling eastbound on U.S. 24 when for unknown reasons, the vehicle crossed the center line and struck a semi that was traveling westbound. The driver of the pick-up truck was ejected and died at the scene. The driver of the semi received minor injuries and was taken to Parkview Hospital as a precaution. After the crash, the semi flipped on its side and landed in a ditch. The crash remains under investigation by the Allen County Sheriff’s Department and the F.A.C.T. Team.
