July 29, 2018

One man was killed and another injured when a pickup truck and semi collided Friday afternoon at U.S. 30 and Ohio 49 in Van Wert County, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.

At 3:35 p.m. the pickup driven by Clarence Radabaugh, 62, of Cloverdale, Ohio, was southbound on Ohio 49 and failed to yield to a semi driven west on U.S. 30 by Jose Martinez, 47, of Elkhart, Indiana, the highway patrol at Van Wert said in a statement.

After colliding with the pickup, Martinez’s semi went through the median and overturned, blocking the eastbound lanes of U.S. 30, the statement said. Radabaugh’s pickup came to rest in a westbound lane.

Radabaugh died at the scene. Martinez was taken to Van Wert Health, where he was treated and released.

U.S. 30 was closed in both directions during the investigation and cleanup.
