Man Killed In Northwest Ohio Snowplow Crash


UPDATED: Monday March 3, 2014 9:06 AM

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says a 22-year-old man was killed when he slammed his car into the rear of a snowplow.

The patrol said Daniel D. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident just before 9 p.m. Sunday on U.S. 6 in Sandusky County in northern Ohio.

Johnson was wearing his seat belt when he crashed his 2002 Pontiac Bonneville into the 2006 International truck driven by 54-year-old Donald E. Schlea, who was injured and taken to a hospital. There was no word on his condition.

The crash is still being investigated. Troopers don't believe alcohol was a factor.
