April 4, 2013

LIMA — A man found slumped over the wheel of his pickup truck Monday appears to have died from natural causes.

The Allen County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to state Route 81 and Fetter Road at 12:13 p.m. Monday, where deputies found Garry Cummins, 67, of Harrod, in someone’s yard. Cummins apparently drifted off the road while traveling eastbound on state Route 81 following a medical incident.

Sheriff’s Detective Brett Rider said EMS workers were on the scene performing CPR when deputies arrived.

The Allen County Coroner requested further investigation, but Rider said nothing suspicious is suspected. No one else was hurt in the incident.
