Columbus Grove man dies in crash

LIMA — A Columbus Grove man is dead after a single-vehicle crash late Saturday in Monroe Township.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, at approximately 10:06 p.m. Todd M. Donaldson, 46, of Columbus Grove was driving a pickup truck north on Stewart Road just south of Hook-Waltz Road when his vehicle started going off the right side of the roadway. After getting back on the roadway, Donaldson’s vehicle then spun out and went completely off the right side of the roadway, striking a utility pole and coming to rest in a field.

Donaldson was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, and alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the accident, according to the highway patrol. Cairo-Monroe Township Fire and EMS, American Electric Power and the Allen County Coroner’s Office assisted at the scene.

The crash remains under investigation.
