Montpelier Man Dies In Crash

A man from Mont­pe­lier died in a crash Fri­day evening. The Ohio High­way Patrol say 87 year old Lavon Joice was east­bound on US-20 just west of County Road 15 Fri­day night around 8:30 when he lost con­trol of his vehi­cle, and crossed over into the west­bound lane, slam­ming into a vehi­cle dri­ven by Roger Cor­dray of Toledo.

Joice was pro­nounced dead at the scene by the Williams County Coro­ner. Cor­dray was taken by ambu­lance to Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tals and Well­ness Centers-Montpelier where he was treated and released.

Police say black ice on the road at the time most likely con­tributed to the crash. They also say both dri­vers were wear­ing seat belts.

Police also think the black ice on the high­way was behind at least two other crashes on US-20 Fri­day evening.

The inves­ti­ga­tion into that fatal Fri­day night crash is continuing.
