The driver, Ronald V. Zahn, 44, was trapped inside the vehicle.  He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Zahn was not wearing a seat belt.  Officials say alcohol could be a factor.


A 29 year old Aniwa man was killed in a separate motorcycle crash in the Township of Wittenberg.

It appears the driver was traveling westbound on STH 29 when he entered the ditch and was thrown into the eastbound lane.

Noel C. Joyce was pronounced dead at the scene.  He was not wearing a helmet.  Speed is believed to be a factor.

Both crashes are under investigation.
