PLAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal two-vehicle crash in Plain Township Thursday afternoon.

Around 3:45 p.m., a 2011 Ford F250 was driving southbound on Jefferson Road state approaching the intersection of Route 95 when it failed to stop at the stop sign, according to troopers.

The F250 failed to yield to a 2009 Ford Taurus traveling westbound on SR 95, which then struck the F250’s driver side, forcing it off the road before striking a tree, troopers said.

The driver of the F250, later identified as 25-year-old Joshua House, was transported to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt, according to troopers.

Dayle Tucker, 65, who was driving the Taurus, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Wayne County Coroner Office. She was wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash, troopers said.

Drugs and alcohol are not suspected factors in the crash, according to troopers.

The crash remains under investigation.
